What we're about
Are you learning Japanese? Do you need to brush up on your Japanese? Are you fluent, with an interest in helping others attain fluency? If any of these describe you, you're in the right place!
This Meetup is for people determined to improve their Japanese fluency. As such, do not expect to hear English being spoken at this Meetup. While speaking entirely in Japanese might not be possible for you yet, even listening to others while thumbing through your Japanese/English dictionary will help with word and phrase recognition.
As this Meetup is intended for people of all fluency levels, it would be helpful to see the faces of people who will be attending. Even though profile pictures are optional, please consider having a picture that clearly shows your face! This will help conversations start with 「スティーヴさん！」instead of 「あの。。。」. That being said, please also introduce yourself when you arrive!
メンバーたちは、日本語能力試験のために勉強したり、教育的なゲームをしたり、日本語でも英語でも会話をしたりする。そういう事よりも、他の文化に詳しくなって友人を作るチャンスです。 ^ ^
Notes for beginners:
Even if you are a complete novice in Japanese, consider bringing along a small phrasebook, and communicate or role-play with us as if you were in Japan. It will be good practice for everyone!
