Conversation Practice at Gypsy Beans

Gypsy Beans & Baking Co.

Come join us at Gypsy Beans for some conversation practice! This meetup is targeted to those with a conversational level of Japanese, so we'll try to avoid using English when possible. Beginners are welcome to come and listen in to improve your listening skills. And if you don't know what to say or what something means, please don't hesitate to ask questions. We'll be glad to help you out!
