The New York City Japanese Language November Meetup - 日本語で遊ぼう!

Hi J-Meetup Members,

We will have a Japanese Language Improv Workshop for our November event! This workshop is for anyone who is studying Japanese, wants to study Japanese and just wants to play with Japanese!!

The most important thing when you study a foreign language is to connect your own imagination to the foreign language. We will do a lot of easy-fun games that will help you become imaginative.

Let's talk in Japanese, think in Japanese and play in Japanese!! We will use our head and body, therefore, that would be a good exercise, right? Not only Japanese learners but also native Japanese speakers are all welcome!!

Admission: $7 by Paypal and $10 @ Door
