What we're about
This is a group for those interested in studying Japanese language and learning about Japan's culture plus much more. All skill levels of proficiency are welcome as there will be a meet up class for complete beginners and one for those with Japanese speaking ability already. You can learn and practice your Japanese socialising with people with a similar interest in Japan, its language, culture and heritage. So join us and meet other speakers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere! It's all about inclusion here with interaction among all the learners as the aim is to either learn, improve on or consolidate existing Japanese speaking skills. For serious language learners who attend classes (Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced) there will be a 7 Stages learning process which should take capable and committed students from a beginner to an advanced level. Each stage should last between 6-8 weeks, well certainly the first 5 stages. Stage 6 will be a 4-week course whilst Stage 7 will be 8-weeks. With focus, determination and fine tutelage we believe this can be achieved within a year. Those already capable of speaking it should serve to build on already acquired language abilities.
