What we're about

Anyone who is keen on learning and practicing Japanese, no matter the level, is welcome to join! We also help native Japanese speakers improve their English!

We also do unadvertised trips to Devil's Lake, New Glarus and Epic, so if you'd like to be part of those, join in on the fun!

Seven Tips for Reaching Out (during a pandemic)
* Confidence is key. Arm yourself with a good self-introduction and be ready to engage in casual conversation with people you come across.
* Put in an active effort. Friendships rarely just happen.
* Say yes to safe, socially distanced opportunities. On the flip side: Have a good reason to say no.
* Remember: You set the expectations for your own space.
* Keeping up with a routine can offer strong support to virtual friendships.
* Use your network however you can.
* Be kind to yourself. It might be hard to make friends at first. Remember, there are people who want to be your friend.
