Studying Japanese? Want to practice speaking and exchange knowledge with other Japanese learners?

This the meetup for you! Here's the concept: get together at a bar in Manhattan, hang out and practice Japanese over drinks. We (Ben and Drew) have been studying Japanese for quite a while now and we want to share our knowledge with the community. We want to help you improve your Japanese! We will speak Japanese with anyone! The only rule is, everybody who attends has to practice speaking some Japanese!

Native Japanese speakers welcome!

Your organizers: Ben has been studying Japanese in New York for more than eight years. Drew has lived and studied in Tokyo and Yokohama for a year and a half and worked for two years in Sapporo.
