Nijikaiwa - Japanese Conversation Practice
Purpose / Mission: To facilitate the improvement of Japanese language skills.
Year Established: 1993
Main Activities: The weekly gatherings are informal to allow individuals to get together to use their Japanese language conversation skills. The meetings are not a class, there are no lessons, but just a place to use what an individual has learned. People of all ages and Japanese language ability levels are welcome, including Japanese individuals wishing to practice their English. There is no cost to join or attend the weekly meetings.
Main Contacts: Contact us by sending an e-mail through the Japan Council. They will forward it to one of us.
"When you get enough people together Nijikaiwa happens." - Warren McAllen
This week's interesting word was critical mass (rinkai shitsuryou). It came up when talking about how when certain people gather together without fail certain topics are discussed.
