Chat Events Details
Chat events are offered once a month at two skill levels (Beginner 2/Intermediate and Intermediate/Advanced), and are moderated by a JOI teacher. The moderator keeps the conversation flowing and offers help if you stumble over how to say something in Japanese. But the moderator won't bog down the discussion with tiny corrections of grammar or word choice the point is to practice real communication in Japanese.

Student Voice for Chat Events
Sharon (US) says...
I have been taking classes at JOI for many years, and I often use the free learning tools. The monthly chat events are amongst my favorite tools. They provide an ideal forum for improving my Japanese conversation skills, and it’s fun to get to know other students from all over the world. I can both improve my Japanese and learn about other countries’ customs and cultures. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, and everybody has the opportunity to participate.Using the free chat events, quizzes and teachers’ blogs is a great way to supplement the classes. The wide variety of forums provide me with something new to study everyday, so I never get bored and I continue to advance. Plus, the teachers are very professional and well-qualified, so classes are interesting and worthwhile.
