JLCE is a FREE Japanese Language Group between Orange County and Los Angeles!

Each week we host Japanese language and culture meet ups on Friday at Panera Bread in Seal Beach. It's a great opportunity to introduce yourself to new friends and sharpen your Japanese language skills.

We also host meetups on members' requests. Let an event host know about any restaurants, events, or places you'd like to check out with us and we can arrange something.

Group membership is free. If you'd like to sponsor us or advertise with us, please contact the organizer with more information. 

Who Should Attend?

Who are we?
