Intercultural Communication Center (ICC)Waseda University


ICC Japanese Chat Club Online – Recruiting Participants (November 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 to you?

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, in order to allow as many international students to participate as possible we will be continuing our two online clubs per week format from October into November.
You can join and interact with us from your house and even from outside Japan!

Even though some classes are being held in person again, we’re sure there are many international students have not had the chance to make Japanese friends yet, and who could not participate due to their schedule in October. So all of you, don’t miss this chance! Sign up now!
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.
