Intercultural Communication Center (ICC)Waseda University

【Recruiting for International Students Registration Period: Sep. 18 – Oct 5】Japanese Chat Club Online (October 2020)


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.”

Do any of these thoughts seem familiar toyou?

If so, then join the popular ICC Japanese Chat Club, where you can actively communicate in Japanese and enjoy “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 you can meet and chat with the same members many times, and make friends with each other on a deeper level.

This semester, to try and give as many international students as possible the chance to join we will be holding the club on Zoom.

You can join and interact with us from your house and even from outside Japan!
Autumn semester is starting soon and some of the classes are planned to be held face to face, but we believe that there are many international students who didn’t have a chance to make new friends after entering Waseda.
This is a chance for you not only want to practice your Japanese but also mix with Japanese students and grow your on campus network even a little so that you will have more peace of mind 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.
