Casual Conversation (San Francisco)

Location visible to members

The venue is nice, clean, spacious, and in a very convenient location for both people who live in SF & commuters from the East or South Bay. We alternate between English-only and Japanese-only conversations every 30 minutes. After one hour, we will move people around so you can practice speaking with different people. **Special Note: If you can't make it, please change your RSVP so that those on the waiting list can attend.

Casual Conversation (Palo Alto)

Location visible to members

Casual conversation at a bakery in Palo Alto! Come join us for alternating Japanese and English conversation (change languages every 30 minutes). Topics will change freely, though there will be conversation starters to keep the talking going. Come have a pastry or a snack and some coffee or tea and practice your Japanese or English! Don't feel like you have to be here for the full meetup, either, since we'll be changing languages every 30 minutes. Come for just a bit, or come for the whole thing, it's fine either way! パロアルトのオシャレなパン屋でカジュアルにお話ししましょう!日本語から英語からと30分ごとに変えるので気楽に来てください。日本語と英語をパンやケーキでも食べながら練習しましょう!話しの話題は決まってないので自由に会話してください。

Sunday Casual Conversation (San Francisco)

Location visible to members

The space is a very convenient location for both people who live in SF & commuters from the East or South Bay. We will be sitting in the food court in front of the restaurant "Loving Hut" and next to the "Pressed Juicery". We usually sit on the round tables next to Pressed Juicery. There will be a sign saying "Nihongo Moriagari / 日本語もりあがり" so please look out for it. Every meetup we spend the first 30 minutes conversing in English, then switch to 30 minutes in Japanese. Then repeat for the remaining hour. **Notes: If you can't make it, please change your RSVP so that those on the waiting list can attend. This is the same setup as the Monday meetups but on Sunday.
