Japanese Practice for Late-beginner and Intermediate Levels

This event is for learners and lovers of the Japanese language who are at a beginner or intermediate level and who are looking for ways to practice speaking Japanese or otherwise to improve their Japanese! The meetup focuses on practicing Japanese conversations and answering Japanese-related questions that the participants may have. We will be speaking in both English and Japanese as needed. Being adventurous and making mistakes are encouraged as they are great ways to learn, so feel free to use and ask about new grammar and structures that you have encountered while studying. Not everyone has to speak. You are welcome to attend just to listen and learn about how Japanese is spoken and used. The event is 7 - 8:30 p.m. on Thursdays. The event is via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/8643748869?pwd=aXhtOVp0RTYxN1FLMnBPR1FuNmY5UT09
