Don't forget to sign up for our next Japanese Language Series night happening TONIGHT, June 28th at 6PM!

This month, we're celebrating outgoing JETs, with a focus on games and quizzes to make sure our next generation JETs have their bases covered for communication in JET! It's not going to be drills and worksheets though. We'll be making it much more fun and memorable. Topics to be covered: mood and communication in Japan, vocabulary that should make your ears perk up, and the keys to your livelihood in Japan (banking, haircuts, checkout counters, taxis, making reservations, and more)!

Sign up here!


Never attended before? Unsure of your proficiency level? That’s okay! All levels of experience with Japanese are welcome! If you're curious, don't hesitate to sign up, or contact Rurik for more information.

Don't forget to tune in TONIGHT, Friday, June 24 from 7-8:30 PM CST, for the second event of JETAA Chicago's '22 Survival Series, Diversity of Experience Panel, for outgoing '22 JETs !

As a reminder, this event will be focused on giving outgoing JETs the chance to discuss how to navigate areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) while in Japan, as well as how said areas will impact one's experience, such as being a minority, double-minority, and even novel minority. The panel will be led by JET Alumni who have navigated areas of DEI and are also open to answering questions.

Sign up here!

Also, JETAA Chicago is in need of JET alumni mentors to help educate and onboard the next generation of outgoing JETs! Interested? Fill out the Alumni Mentor In-take Form!
