There are a LOT of people registered in this group: I've met ALL levels of speakers (from beginners to native Japanese speakers), and I've met a lot of others with interests outside of learning the language.
We've had the best mix of individuals show up when we've done meetups for parties, dinners, festivals, and karaoke.
Some of the members have expressed interest in getting together with native speakers of Japanese (and advanced Japanese speakers) for language learning sessions. Perhaps anybody looking to become a Japanese teacher could even teach some Japanese to interested members.
Native English speakers can teach Japanese individuals English in exchange. Please let us know your thoughts.
Meet and mingle with local Japanese language and culture lovers! Come to a Japanese Language Meetup to meet others with similar interests, hear stories about travel in Japan, maybe learn some Japanese, or just hang out! chikaku ni sundeiru nihon no kata mo zehi irasshattekudasai!
