Join us Wednesday, November 29th from 7:00-8:00 pm CST, for JETAA Chicago's last Japanese Language Series event for 2023!

It might be past time to start preparing for the JLPT in December, but we're going for one last Gambare! We will be going through some Kanji and Dokkai (reading) activities based on the JLPT N4, N3, and N2. Not preparing for any of those tests? No worries! The night will still be an opportunity for Japanese practice for all skill levels. ぜひ来てください!

The Japanese Language Series events are intended to bring together JETAA members and supporters who want to stay engaged with Japanese language learning and use.

Sign up here!

Questions? Email our Secretary, Rurik.

This event is open to alumni and Friends of JET.
