Are you a lover of the Japanese language but have had a hard time finding focused groups that are serious about high-level practice? Can you speak Japanese at a conversational level, but find it difficult to make the leap to fluency? Are you interested in challenging your Japanese ability to reach your maximum potential as a polyglot? Do you have a sincere interest in the Japanese language beyond just anime and J-pop?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this may be the group for you.
We're a group of Japanese language enthusiasts who are looking to create an environment that will afford us the tools, resources, and opportunities to take our Japanese to the level of true fluency and we hope to find like-minded individuals to contribute to our study sessions.
New York City is a great place for learning languages because it's so easy to find people from all across the world who speak many languages, but despite this fact, opportunities to study the Japanese language are often aimed at low-level learners. We want to change this by creating a group with high ideals and dedication to focused study through various activities and events related to Japanese language.
This group is currently a work in progress--or perhaps more of an experiment, and we are looking for members that can help us grow into something truly great. So if you are hardcore about Japanese language, please join!
