    Online talk


    We will continue to provide online learning and consultation (Japanese and English) under the COVID-19 lockdown.
    Each online talk has a theme. For example, cherry blossom season, summer vacation, New Year's events, tourist spots, school life, convenience stores, home centers, useful things, etc. We exchange information not only about Japan, but also about our home countries. Difficult Japanese words that come up in our conversations are written in the chat. We mainly target those who can speak more than a little Japanese. If you would like to chat, please feel free to contact us.
