Hi everyone, I arrived in Japan 3 months ago and am staying here for at least a year. I’ve only got a part-time job at the moment – 3 days a week and the pay isn’t that great, but I really want and need to learn some Japanese to help make my life here a little bit easier and hopefully to meet a fun network of locals too.
Any ideas of community-based groups anywhere in the Tokyo area that teach Japanese for free or at a very low-cost? Any info would be greatly appreciated! :-D
Geegee- where in Tokyo are you living at the moment? I currently go to community-based classes in Oomori at the Sanno Hall on Tuesdays from 10am – 12pm and Thursdays 7pm – 9pm. They suit all levels and are run by volunteers. Price ranges from 100 yen per class to 1000 yen per month. Very cheap and it’s a great way to network with other foreigners and the locals :) – hope that helps!
