What we're about

Welcome! ようこそ!We are a group of beginner, intermediate, advanced, and native Japanese speakers getting together each week to study the Japanese language, culture, and attend local events in the Orlando area relating to Japanese culture.

Members who have ATTENDED our meetups IN PERSON at least ONCE within the past YEAR may sign up for online meetups. New or inactive members of the Orlando Japanese Language Meetup who wish to participate in ONLINE events contact the meetup organizer.

  • Understanding of Hirigana/Katakana
  • Solid N5-JLPT level understanding (grammar/vocab/kanji)
  • General understanding of verb conjugations (ru verbs, u verbs, adjectives, past/present, te-form, etc.)

Nice-to-haves:

  • Genki II textbook (physical or digital copy OK but not required)
  • Notebook (physical or digital OK) to take notes during the sessions
  • Time to review (we will be moving through the chapters at a consistent pace, please schedule time for yourself to review the previous week's content and come with questions if any arise)

頑張りましょう!Happy Learning!

[Online] Beginner’s Japanese Language Study & Chat

Link visible for attendees

Our goal is to have fun learning Japanese together. Come with an open mind, be okay with change, embrace the new, and get ready to learn.

Remote: See you online! 😄

We'll first focus on vocabulary, have a grammar review, participate in group activities, and possibly learn kanji. In addition to grammar lessons, reading, and listening practice. We'll play a few games and have some speaking practice. Come with an open mind and ready to learn.

Look forward to a fun, energetic, and thought-provoking class.

PLEASE wear headphones, earpieces, headset, or earbuds during these video calls.
