We meet at a cafe or other public place, and help each other learn English and Japanese! Come and join us! We’ll make sure you get enjoyable but serious language practice. We think it’s more fun to practice in a group than meet strangers from language exchange websites.
This meetup is open to native English speakers who are interested in the Japanese language, as well as native Japanese speakers who want to improve their English.
NOTE: For the purposes of this group, a native speaker is someone who went to an English or Japanese speaking elementary school, or spoke Japanese or English with their family at home during their elementary school years. Please respect our language exchange format and restriction to native speakers of the two languages.
We welcome folks who are just starting to learn, as well as those who already speak Japanese and want to practice.
If you are in Tokyo, check out Tokyo Spontaneous ( https://www.meetup.com/tokyospontaneous ). Their language exchange events are the closest thing to New York 会話 in Tokyo. I have personally attended some of their different events recently. The atmosphere is much nicer than other international events in Tokyo, with a good variety of quality people.
