I heard there is a Japanese speaking group that meets ocassionally and I did hear that the gatherings happened before.
Is it still happening by any chance?

Japanese Meet-up

Postby hawthornflakes » Mon, 03 Apr 2006 9:13 am

If you are interested, the Japanese meetup group is having a gathering on 11April at Tea Chapter Neil Road. Refreshments usu. cost around S$7. But they do bring in native speakers and we practise our oral skills (or what's left of them). The previous time I went, it was a pretty large multi-cultural group. No biru guzzling though

Jaa mata nee.

No lar...where got all advanced speakers?

Postby hawthornflakes » Tue, 04 Apr 2006 9:09 pm

Just turn up...no need to contact anyone in advance... pay the organizer at the end of the gathering for the refreshments.

And everyone is welcome, no matter how good/ poor your Jap is.
At least be prepared to introduce yourself very briefly.
e.g. Name ~ " Watashi wa _______ desu" followed by the casual "douzo yoroshiku" is enough lar.

I havent used my rusty Jap for eons leh.... :???:
