What is Ameripon?

We are a Japanese-English language exchange group with a focus on conversation practice for those 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 on Sunday afternoons at Citi Atrium (601 Lexington Avenue). We also host fun outings in between--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! お楽しみにしています!
