Helen Akiyama, one of the members is organising a very interesting workshop called 'Women in Business' on 2nd November 2016. It will be held between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm and £8 for the entry. It is important to support women's working environment and especially in Japan today. If you are interested, please see the PDF below.
The topic of the month is ‘Traditional/Popular Sports in Japan'. However, please enjoy any topics with native speakers if you wish. I hope this will provide a cross-cultural learning platform for you to exchange information, opinions and help your deeper understanding of different cultures with native Japanese speakers. Please attend the session(s) that you are interested in.
Date : 15th of October 2016 (the 3rd Saturday every month)
Time : Japanese Speaking Session 10:00 am – 10:55 am
Break 10:55 am – 11:05 am
English Speaking Session 11:05 am – 12:00 pm
Venue: Waterloo, London
Free of charge
Please remember you can help with organising and support the continuity of these events with your contributions – the contribution box will be on the table during the event. Your contribution is used to show courtesy (e.g. to purchase Japanese snacks) to the native speakers who kindly attend to talk with you. In the case of surplus, I would like to donate to the Japanese government organisation which helps people who suffer from the natural disasters in Japan.
Please contact me if you are interested. I look forward to seeing you then.
