Two dates available - 10th & 23rd September
Always fancied learning a bit of Japanese? Here is your chance!
At just £7.50, this is a great - and rare - opportunity to get a flavour for the Japanese language with a professional tutor. Everyone is welcome* and there is zero knowledge required to take part. This could either be a fun one-off experience or just the start of more Japanese learning to come.
*There is no lower (or upper!) age restriction on Taster Sessions, and past participants have been as young as 13. However, content is generally aimed at adults and may not be enjoyable for young children. Please get in touch with any queries.
Tasters last 1.5hrs (including a 5-10min break) and cover:
A brief intro to the Japanese language: its background, structure and writing systems
Writing your name in rōmaji and katakana
Speaking activities: basic greetings and self-introductions
Games: explore Japanese onomatopoeia, counters and wasei eigo
Q&A: your chance to ask any remaining questions and find out more about what it's like to learn Japanese
Please note that this a general outline and that specific points covered may vary slightly on the day.
To help you get the most out of your Taster, you can expect:
Small group size: just 3-5 participants
Fun, engaging activities
Clear, accessible content
A friendly, supportive environment
