Who is it for?

Bento Chat hour is best suited for Upper Begginer to Intermediate Japanese learners who would like to improve their speaking abilities.

How does it work?

Learners will be matched in groups of 3 with 1 Native volunteer and for the duration of the Bento Chat Hour – they will speak only in Japanese!
If you need to ask questions in English this is okay – but our volunteers will do their best to only use Japanese with you.

Where is it?

Bento Chat Hour is hosted at Coto Japanese Academy IIdabashi
