Japanese Language
(adult beginner to intermediate)

Japanese Adult days of the week2.jpg

Have you always wanted to learn to speak Japanese, but been too busy to jump in? Or learned a bit from your parents or grandparents, but never studied it in a structured way? Or maybe you took classes long ago but forgotten most of it by now. This is your chance to learn Japanese in a structured, but informal and fun environment. We meet once a week and spend part of the time on the textbook to learn the basics, and the rest of the time practicing conversation or reading Japanese stories.
