Read, Write, and Talk in Japanese ~ Happy Science ~http://www.meetup.com/NYC-Chat-in-Japanese-Group-Happy-Science/https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/7/d/0/2/global_10832002.jpeg20090921
My friends at Happy Science (Buddhist based non-profit organization) have been asking me to set up a Japanese study group so they can improve their Japanese skills.
We started out as a chat group but it seems more people who are inexperienced in Japanese but would like to learn the language are gathering. Some are willing to go to Japan and therefore I've decided to start out a little more basic than intended.
I hope to help these beginners out so we can have a more live Japanese conversation. If you already speak Japanese and would like to help people improve their Japanese skills, you're more than welcome to join and share your knowledge, experience and talking skills!!
I am not a professional teacher but I am fluent in both Japanese and English so I would like to help out those who wish to communicate in Japanese. We will be seriously studying Japanese sometimes using our temple publication to start off the class.
