Weekly Japanese/English Conversation
Members of all levels are welcome, from absolute beginners on up, and there is never a prerequisite. Native speakers are also encouraged to attend, both to lend their expertise and to receive the benefit of a look at the structure of Japanese from an outside linguistic perspective. This is an opportunity to practice Japanese conversation, discuss, explore and study the grammar, particles, Kanji, idioms and of course the culture of Japan (members share their Japanese experience). The topics vary among all these according to what people are interested in talking about and the natural flow of conversation. Moreover, native Japanese speakers are encouraged to practice their English (and/or ask questions about various difficult situations in their English studies) in exchange for their assisting Japanese language students. Our meeting place is at the right side of this photo... at the top of the escalator, turn right and proceed to the back side just before where the down escalator is located at. The meeting is free with no membership dues, hourly costs or other expenses. ==> Learning & Practice RESOURCES Various materials http://www.meetup.com/Japanese-Culture/messages/boards/thread/3199165/0#[masked] KANJI http://www.meetup.com/Japanese-Culture/messages/boards/forum/1175397 KATAKANA http://www.meetup.com/Japanese-Culture/messages/boards/forum/1198386 HIRAGANA http://www.meetup.com/Japanese-Culture/messages/boards/forum/1198387 Please click over DISCUSSIONS ->Message Board, then select your favorite topic.

What we're about

Our native speakers are quite happy to introduce you to their centuries-old culture. Many patient advanced students blend their knack for language learning with their enthusiasm for sharing. Japanese friends - all fluent native speakers - serve as volunteer sensei-figures, and learners of ALL LEVELS meet to teach, learn, and practice speaking Japanese and writing Kanji, Kana, or Romaji. A small study group is more conducive to language learning! Thus, we will expand to additional tables as necessary. This is also a great opportunity to discuss Japan and its internationally prominent culture, as well as the difficult issues that arise in any such discourse. Kindly COME ON IN !!! = Also check our Group Message Board http://www.meetup.com/Japanese-Culture/messages/boards/
