*Japanese Conversation Salon
I am studying Japanese because it is essential for me in order to live in Japan. I would be happy if I could find a job that would require a Japanese language ability when I return to China. This conversation class is fulfilling because we can talk and study Japanese one on one. We can study according to our conversation ability. Besides I can ask my conversation partner whenever I come across things that I cannot understand. My partner answeres my questions right away. The teachers are kind and the lessons are well done.
