Want to practice your Japanese skills AND make friends with local Japanese people and other people from the international community? We hold a language exchange at Hayama Cafe in Numazu every Wednesday so if that sounds like you, feel free to stop by and join in the fun!
What makes this meetup different to other language exchanges?!
Well, there will be approximately 1 hour of designated Japanese practice where everyone will primarily only speak in Japanese and approximately 1 hour of English practice with primarily only English to ensure that all language learners, no matter what their level, can IMMERSE themselves in the language they want to improve in and really put all that studying to use in REAL life! All beginners welcome! Everyone needs to start somewhere, right? 🙂
We can teach you how to say “What’s __ in Japanese or English” so that you can continue to speak as much in the language you are learning as possible!
With this event, we will put a stop to your inability to practice the language you are learning simply because the person you’re talking to is able to speak your native tongue better than you can in theirs! Bring some friends who have been suffering along side you and let’s get in some REAL life language practice!!
Hope to see you there! XD
What to bring:
1. A gold coin contribution (500 yen) to assist us in organising and keeping this group running :).
>> Your help will also assist me in buying our group any resources that we need to make our language exchange experience better for you. If you have any suggestions for improvement or changes, please let me know :).
This group is help kept running by the caring people who support us in making Shizuoka prefecture an exciting place to live with lots of active, fun events!
Without you, we couldn’t keep making these events so we really appreciate your support!
2. Something to take notes with – a pen/pencil, notebook or bring your smart phone and use its memo application.
3. Some money to order a coffee/tea/ some food from the coffee shop’s awesome selection of drinks :)! This place is one of my most favourite coffee shops in Numazu so I’m sure you’ll enjoy it too!
