Let’s speak Japanese!
Exchange students studying Japanese, you’re trying your hardest in class but as soon as you leave the room;
“I don’t really have a chance to speak much.”
“I can’t make any Japanese friends.”
Does this worry you?
If so, then join the ICC Japanese Chat Club, where you can actively communicate in Japanese and enjoy the “real” conversation with Japanese students.
For those who don’t like always having to meet and get to know new people, the club-style of this program means that each time you can continue chatting with the same members.
This semester, to try and give as many international students as possible the chance to join this club despite the difficult circumstances currently, we will be holding a special version of the club on Zoom.
This means you can interact with Japanese students from abroad and in the comfort of your home. This club gives you not only the opportunity to practice your Japanese but also to build and expand your network at Waseda and make new friends you can meet when you return to campus.
So if you want to make more friends who you can talk with online as well, if you haven’t arrived in Japan yet and want to exchange information, we’ll be waiting for your application.
