After living in Tokyo for 2 years I’ve found myself exceedingly good at conversations around a very small number of topics, and by that I mean, “Where are you from; self introduction”-esque conversations only haha. Not only is this obviously limiting, it also means my vocabulary remains limited too.
I had an idea where we could discuss/converse about a predefined topic (i.e. a news article) and just have a conversation about it, in Japanese. It would force us to look up new words, and look outside of the vocabulary we are comfortable with using etc. Is this something that is already done somewhere (between learners, I mean)? If it is please point me to it! If not, where would be best to set something like this up? Here on the forum?
