Do you have a solid foundation of essential Japanese? Have you completed your JLPT 4 test and are currently studying for JLPT 3? Let’s help you level up your intermediate Japanese skills!
We are now accepting students for a 10-week workshop on intermediate conversations. Under the steady guidance of Ikunaga-sensei, 6 students will have the opportunity to flex their Japanese capabilities over Zoom for 2 hours at a time. In this intimate group setting, Ikunaga-sensei will be able to gauge the needs of each student and adjust the subject matter to those needs. This is a great way to grow comfortable using Japanese in unscripted and genuine conversations, and to help take your Japanese speaking to the next level!
Examples of topics that will be covered:
*This workshop is meant for those who already have a foundation in Japanese, preferably having participated in JSNC’s Intermediate 1-3 OR completed JLPT level 4/studying for the JLPT level 3 test.
*Workshops with low enrollment may be canceled.
Date: Tuesdays, starting on May 3 at 18:00-20:00 (Pacific Time) – 10 sessions!
Fee: $300 (Membership is required for this booking. Join and support the Japan Society! Membership can also be applied to sign up for group lessons and workshops in the future!)
Class format: Zoom. We want to see your happy faces, so we ask that all students turn their videos on.
