Are you interested in Japanese language? Come and join us to practice speaking, learn new vocabulary, get help wrangling with the writing systems, and simply meet with other language students.

We are currently a small group of people ranging from total beginner to lower intermediate Japanese that will be focusing on developing the skills needed to take and pass the JLPT n5. Registrations for the exam this year have closed, but we are shooting for taking the exam in December 2014. Don't feel that you *have* to take this test to be a member.

We will be using the text book "Genki" as our guide over the next year or so. The first level of "Genki" is split into 12 lessons, and so we are planning on spending a month (or so) on each lesson.

Learning Japanese should be fun and interesting, and so there will be plenty of opportunity for conversation, watching short video clips, making friends with other Japanese enthusiasts, and learning about Japanese culture.

People of all ability levels are encouraged to attend. There is no cost to attend outside of getting your hand on a copy of Genki.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
