Hello! I am based in Machida, Tokyo. I couldn’t find any language exchange group near my home, so I decided to start my own.
After a week and a half, there are 60 members in the group already, so I am planning to organize the first event as soon as possible.
Besides the logistics of finding a suitable space for ~20 people who I expect will show up, what are things I should know about organizing a group language exchange?
I am totally new at this, so for now I am only considering: separating into groups of 4-6 people, and doing 20 minutes only in English and 20 minutes only in Japanese.
Do you have any tips to make it better, more enjoyable, more efficient, etc? Any tips welcome!
