Pera Pera Weekly Chat is Back: July 2022 Schedule

Sometimes, you learn more stuff outside the classroom than inside — and we’re taking it in the most literal sense. The good news is that Coto’s Pera Pera Session is back and rolling. Ever heard of the Japanese onomatopoeia “pera pera”? The word means to “talk fluently” — and that’s the main goal of this active learning session.

This is your chance to finally interact with native instructors in the most natural way. No textbook examples. We want you to step out of your comfort zone and unleash your Japanese language potential.

Important: This event is exclusive to Coto students only.

What’s in a Pera Pera Session?

Pera Pera is a chat session with a Coto teacher, together with other fellow students. It’s a 50-minute talking opportunity purely Japanese. You can ask your teacher for corrections or advice on how to speak Japanese more naturally.

We also limit one session to only 6 student participants, which means you’ll have ample time to talk, observe and ask questions.

Perapera Weekly Chat Schedule

Our Pera Pera sessions are set at different levels and about different topics every week. We want to make sure you take a second glance at not just the time and date, but the target Japanese skill. We don’t want you to feel underwhelmed or overwhelmed when you participate, after all.
