So, I’m really sad. At the college I attended, halfway through my time there they discontinued the Japanese course. It’s been so difficult to keep on task by myself and to finish it, but I’m determined.
Then I thought, maybe it would be fun to get people together who are close to my level to study and master the book together! I’ll be starting out with Genki 1, but any beginner in Japanese is welcome, as long as you know your ひらがな and カタカナ of course, and you’re willing to put weekly time in! I understand this is super basic, but I hope that I’m not alone in this community that I’m still very in the beginning levels of Japanese lol. I have completed Genki 1 before, but…I have a very crude understanding of the grammar after chapter 6, so it would be a great opportunity to master it and connect with other people who are similar to me!
Also, don’t worry if you want to join and don’t have a copy. It is very easy to find PDFs online.
My idea is that once a week ( at least, more would be amazing!) we can get together and practice conversation with the grammar points covered in the chapters we are working with so together we can get the mileage and motivate one another. After all, consistency is key. We can work out the best times all together!
If you’re interested, please join the discord server! It’s still in the process of being set up, but it’s the best time so we can include you in the decision of when to meet!
