Welcome to TJEX!


Who we are:
A friendly community of individuals enthusiastic about the Japanese language and culture.

What we do:
We provide a structured, organized language exchange between language learners and advanced/native speakers of English and Japanese.

Who it’s for:
Individuals wishing to practice or improve their fluency in Japanese or English. All levels of language are welcome – even complete beginners.

It’s also an excellent opportunity to meet new people, practice your English/Japanese, and have fun.

How it works:
Upon arrival you will be placed in a group of four people: one individual who is of a similar level to you, and two individuals of the opposite language.
Groups are organized in advance of the event.

Each event has two RSVP lists - one for each language. Events are generally open for RSVPs two weeks in advance, after 10:00 PM.

Our language exchange is every Saturday & Wednesday evening, with optional dinner (by RSVP) & coffee afterwards.

We also have many special events, often taking us outside of Toronto, including our annual Maple syrup sugar bush tours, ice wine & Niagara Falls tours, St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market trip, and girls-only events.

Please see our event pages for more detailed information.

Our policies:
- Our events are by RSVP only
- The fee per person per Meetup is $1.00.
- No-shows, being late, and day-of RSVP changes are subject to a three-strike removal rule
- We do not tolerate harassment of our members

We encourage the use of all areas of the website. This is your community too, so be sure to make use of all that it has to offer, and above all have fun!

Any of our many organizers would be happy to address any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have.

Come join us!
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
