Japanese Language Table at JASH YPG Party - Tuesday, May 28th, 6:00 PM

The Japan-America Society of Houston's Young Professional Group (YPG) is holding a party at Sushi King on Tuesday, May 28th at 6:00 pm. This is not an official Japanese language event, and the majority of participants can't speak conversational Japanese. However, during all recent YPG parties, native Japanese speakers and bilingual Americans have spent almost all of the evening talking in Japanese at a table separate from the rest of the group, so this has become an ad hoc Japanese language event. Generally the non-Japanese speakers leave early so that these events usually become nearly 100% Japanese-speaking late in the evening.

If you attend, you can at least talk to me in Japanese. If this is like previous YPG events, I recommend simply sitting down at the table where the most native Japanese are sitting, and talk only in Japanese, even if someone asks you something in English. The Japanese-speaking and English-speaking groups segregate rather early. Typically you can spend most of the evening taking in Japanese, and avoid sitting next to someone speaking English. JLPT level 1 or 2 is appropriate since the conversation is at native level.

When: Tuesday, May 28th, 2013, 6:00 to 11:00 PM
Where: Sushi King
3401 Kirby Drive,
Houston, TX 77098

There have been three or four of our members at each of the recent YPG parties, so regular attendees of Houston Japanese Language MeetUp are sure to know someone, at least me.
