This group is primarily for language and culture exchanges between Japanese and American. This group also provides events where you can partake in face-to-face conversation in both Japanese and English. It's a good platform for you to find new language exchange partners or to help you to make new friends, extending your social network. If you are not interested in learning Japanese or English, but are kind enough to become a conversational partner for other fellow language learners, you are also welcome to do so.
We can practice having conversations in Japanese and in English by discussing current events in the world or any other topics.
Depending on the number of Japanese participants, we could pair up or make small groups to have more opportunities for each of us to speak.
Articles on sites such as
or elsewhere may serve as sources of discussion, but it doesn't have to be overly structured
