Start one-on-one Japanese activities (1) [Exchange staff]

This is a commentary page for Japanese exchange members in one-on-one Japanese activities.


We will support you to acquire the Japanese necessary for your life by having a conversation in Japanese with a Japanese learner who wants to learn Japanese (hereinafter referred to as a learner).
The Japanese necessary for daily life is "Japanese used when shopping", "Japanese used when getting on a train or bus", "Japanese necessary when going to a hospital", "With colleagues and friends at school / work" It is indispensable Japanese for daily life, such as "Japanese for conversation".
Since this is an activity to practice Japanese by having conversations in Japanese, please refrain from correcting university papers, studying for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, or teaching specialized Japanese for work. .
I tell the learners that this is not a Japanese language class, so it is not an activity where they are taught Japanese in a passive manner.
The content of the conversation for one-on-one Japanese activities will be decided in consultation with Japanese learners.
