Sunday Language Exchange

Saizeriya near Fujigaoka Station (Tokyu Denetoshi Line)

(English, followed by 日本語) Summary: I’m trying to create opportunities for people to meet and practice their conversation skills, particularly for English and Japanese. So I’m starting by holding trial language exchange sessions like this one, and the venue is a family restaurant. It will be most convenient for people who live close by (Yokohama-shi, Aoba-ku), but anyone is free to join. System: Basically, like in most language exchange meetups, we will choose 3 or more topics to discuss. The total time will be 2 hours, and members will be split into two groups, one for English conversation, and another for Japanese conversation. After 1 hour, participants can choose to move to the other group if they like, or continue in the same group if they prefer to continue speaking just in English or Japanese. Of course, everyone should introduce himself or herself at some point, whether in English, Japanese, or both. Since this is an initial trial, I’m setting a limit of 8 people for this event. But I can adjust it if more people become interested to join. HOWEVER... depending on the people who join, we can easily change the style. If everyone prefers to speak in English, then we will do only English conversation, and the same will be true if everyone prefers to speak only in Japanese. Participation Fee: There is no participation fee. Just please order something from the menu as a courtesy to the restaurant, even if just drinks. I’m setting up this meetup because I used to give English lessons, and based on my conversations with students, it seems to be a bit difficult to find good opportunities for speaking English in Japan. In this way, I hope to be able to provide such an opportunity, especially for people in my local community. ●概要 主に英語と日本語の会話スキルの練習のため、 ランゲージ・エクスチェンジのイベントをお試しで開催します。 場所は横浜市青葉区のファミレスです。 ●システム 基本的には、話し合うトピックを 3つほど選んでディスカッションをします。 合計で2時間ありますので、メンバーを2グループに分け ひとつは英語の会話、もうひとつを日本語の会話とします。 1時間経ったら、グループを移動してもいいですし 同じグループに残っても構いません。 今回は初回なので、8人を上限に設定しました。 もしもっと参加希望者がいた場合には調整も可能です。 ですが、参加者の希望によっては 上記のスタイルでなくても構いません。 英語だけ、日本語だけにすることもできます。 ●参加費 参加費は無料ですが、ご自身のご飲食分のみご負担ください。 私は以前英語を教えていたのですが、 日本で英語を話せるいい機会が少ないことを感じ このイベントを企画しました。 特に私の地元にいる人達のために そういった機会を作り出せるといいなと思っています!
