This is a joint Alciati/Moriagari event. (Kevin Alciati has a separate Japanese language group that has teamed up with Nihongo Moriagari for these bi-weekly group language exchange events)
1st We've outgrown the Yakiniku Cafe.
2nd I chose a South of Market location for the convenience of East Bay and South Bay members.
3rd I'm starting the event a little later (3PM)so members can make better use of their Sunday mornings and afternoons.
1st 30 minutes: Casual Language Exchange: Arrive anytime, get some tea or coffee and join us for a casual group language exchange.
3:30PM: We'll divide into two Tables:: We'll divide into two groups:
Table 1: is for Intermediate to Advanced Levels of Japanese or English.
Table 2: is for the Beginner Levels: You can use the provided English vocabulary games, Kanji Card games, or language exchange.
4:30PM:We will again divide based not on your level, but based on the language that you want to practice.
Table 1 is for Japanese language only. You can talk about what ever you want, play board games, improv games or just converse as long as you do it in Japanese.
Table 2 is for English only: You can talk about what ever you want, play board games, improv games or just converse as long as you do it in English.
5:30PM The management of the Cafe will continue to allow us to use this venue as long as we clean up after ourselves. So make sure to put the chairs back where you got them from, and also throw away any trash or return the glasses before you leave.
6:00PM After we finish, anyone who wants to can continue to converse over dinner at this or a nearby restaurant.
Drop by and join us, you won't regret it!
