Don't forget to join us TOMORROW, July 20th at 6 pm CST for JETAA Chicago and the Japan America Society of Chicago Young Professional Committee's July Book Club meeting!

Our book club will focus on highlighting voices and stories with a strong connection to Japan.

For our second meeting we are revisiting an old favorite with The Housekeeper and the Professor. Written by Yoko Ogawa, it is an enchanting story about what it means to live in the present, and about the curious equations that can create a family.

Be sure to grab your copy of the book and join us for an evening of casual discussion in a virtual space via Zoom!

Read the book but forgot to register? Sign up via Guestlist!


If you have any questions, please reach out to info@jetaachicago.com. We look forward to seeing you there!

Taking your first step towards passing the JLPT? This course by the Japanese Culture Center will support students to prepare for the N5 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). The JLPT is an official exam that measures non-native speakers’ Japanese language proficiency in vocabulary, grammar, reading and listening. The exam is widely recognized by many Japanese companies, schools and universities. You can use your JLPT results for your CV or applications for the schools. The course consists of five-week training, which focuses on each skill and test-strategy that you need to work on in order to pass the exam. The next JLPT exam will be in December 2021.
