Thursday, August 31st, 2017 Meeting
We hope you all had a great summer break. Hopefully you've been practicing your Japanese skills because we'll be driving back into learning the language. We're going to take it slow this first meeting after our long break by getting introduced to the program again and talking about what we've done over the summer vacation. We're also going to be discussing our language goals.
About Nihongo Renshuu
Nihongo Renshuu, or Japanese practice, is a casual learning experience for people wanting to learn Japanese. It’s easy to grab material to study but not so easy when it comes to practicing what you’ve studied. This program is for all Japanese learning levels, from beginner to expert. The reason for the large gap is how this program is formatted. Nihongo Renshuu will help your Japanese by putting it into use in ways such as talking with others and playing games. The most important part about learning a language is having enough interaction with it. This is not a formal Japanese class, but will have class-like aspects to the meetings such as a teaching segment. This program is meant to help with your Japanese studies.
