Mission: to promote language learning through reading and language exchange. We aim to keep positivity and motivation high while developing reading fluency, vocabulary, content discussion, and reading strategies in a fun, collaborative environment.
Meetings: will consist of icebreaker language games, discussions about book topics, questions about language, formation of reading goals, and reading strategy sharing/reflection
Who can join: Japanese learners of English or English-speaking learners of Japanese. Any proficiency level is okay, although it would help to have at least beginner level knowledge of the second language you are studying. You can also sign up for the Facebook group or Google group for reminders.
Kazari Maki-Zushi is a patterned or decorative sushi that is derived from several sushi techniques. Kazari Maki-Zushi can be anything – flowers, fruit, animals, words and even logos. No prior experience is necessary as it involves a different process than creating regular sushi.
At this event, Fumiyo Iwadachi will demonstrate techniques to make decorative sushi. Participants will make their own peach blossom and square designs.
Registration is $25 for JASP members and $35 for non-members.
