What we're about

This kaiwa (conversation) meet up is dedicated to those who want to improve their spoken Japanese effectively. Not a language exchange meetup between the native Japanese speakers and the Japanese learners. The whole 90-minute-lesson is designed for the Japanese learners. You will improve your Japanese in my classes and speak with the Japanese people outside my classes with "confidence". Our methode is based on our school called LetThemTalk. (See www.letthemtalk.co.uk)

Our lessons are not like the conventional foreign language classes, where teachers dominate the conversation in the classroom using textbooks.

Most learners need to practice their Japanese to get more confidence. But not only just chatting... which doesn't help in the end, your mistakes will be corrected and explained. What you need is your motivation. So........

Strike while the iron is hot! 鉄は熱いうちに打て!

We tend to put off doing things. But not this time.

思い立ったら吉日!Act now!

Practice your spoken Japanese language in a small group in a café.

You will be corrected by a native Japanese speaker to improve your spoken Japanese.

Those who can / want to follow the lessons in Japanese are welcome at the Advanced Level 100 % in Japanese.

If you have a lower level and you'd like explanations in English as well as Japanese then join the Everyday Japanese Conversation group. Since we offer "conversational" lessons, some Japanese knowledge will be necessary.

We offer Skype lessons too. (See www.letthemtalk.co.uk)

Read the description of the group to choose your right group.

I'll inform you of the dates in advance so that you can make yourselves available!

See you soon!
