Mukai Japanese Circle
The Mukai Japanese Circle brings together people who are interested in studying and discussing the Japanese language. People of all levels of proficiency and ages are welcome to attend and participate in the group.
We meet every Tuesday night at 7 p.m. on Zoom. If you wish to join, all you need to do is to email a request for the meeting’s Zoom link to the host, Fred Harriman, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Native speakers of Japanese will likely be at the meeting, and Fred is also a professional Japanese Interpreter who taught Japanese at Vashon Island High School during the 2018-19 school year. Such experienced members of our Circle are happy to answer questions about the language and how to speak fluently in Japanese. We also talk about Japanese cultural subjects, history, and current events. When appropriate, the group will split into separate rooms so that participants with varying levels of expertise can concentrate on topics with which they are more familiar.
We hope members will participate actively and let the Circle know what topics are of personal interest to them — please voice all questions and concerns. We are here to learn, but also to help others learn and to express themselves. During our meetings members have fun, relax, and learn new things. Join us!
This online class is free to attend, but donations are welcome and encouraged!
The email address you send your request from will be visible to the other members. The Circle wishes to promote networking among its members. If you do not want your usual email address to be visible to the other members, please create a secondary email address for participation in this group.
It’s OK to be shy, but engagement and participation are important! If you have something on your mind please express it. If you could not express it during the meeting, put your thoughts in an email to Fred.
For the sake of preserving a respectful learning environment, the Moderator of the Circle reserves the discretion to unilaterally dismiss or block any participant who is ill-mannered or prevents others from participating.
