What is Ameripon?

We are a Japanese-English language exchange group with a focus on conversation practice. Our group is aimed toward intermediate/advanced learners looking to improve fluency and ability to discuss various topics beyond the basics of "Nice weather we're having today/今日はいい天気ですね"

During each meet-up, we speak only Japanese half the time, and then only English the other half. Conversation topics will be chosen beforehand and posted in each event description--members are encouraged to prepare by learning more about the talking points beforehand. The more thoughts you can share, the better our conversation practice will become!

Language exchange meet-ups will be held bi-monthly on Sunday afternoons at Sony Plaza (550 Madison Ave). We also plan on hosting fun outings in between language meetups--things like ordering in Japanese at an izakaya, or in English at a steakhouse; or watching Japanese/English movies; or visiting Japan society; or catching a Yankees game. Ultimately, we want to bring YOU the best of Japanese and American culture in New York (and a rip-snortin' good time, too!)

And check us out on Facebook, where you'll find recaps of our events and bi-lingual conversations about anything! 

Ultimately, we want to provide our members with 1) Japanese & English conversation practice, 2) Japanese & American culture exchange, and 3) a Japanese & American community in NY for friends, networking, and support.

We can't wait to meet and practice Japanese & English with all of you. よろしく!

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.
