Everyone is required to know hiragana before attending a meetup.
This is a beginning Japanese conversation meetup. If you feel like you're shy among other Japanese speakers but would like more speaking practice, this could be the group for you!
We base our practice on exercises in the Genki I tetbook and companion workbook so that we're not forced to come up with words and sentences out of thin air. If you don't have them yet, we recommend buying them at The Japan Language Center.
