Yeah, I can speak Japanese, but I'll never learn how to write it!

Author: Shaney Crawford, Issue: October 2002, Topic: Japanese Language

Have you ever said that? Never say never, my friends, because where there's a will, there's a way. And a very good way to buckle down and learn those pesky squiggles is to do as the Japanese do, and join a juku. Have you ever heard of Kumon? Kumon offers a set collection of workbooks and tests to get you anywhere from Grade 1 to Junior High School graduate. The Tsukuba Office is open on Tuesdays and Fridays and you can go anytime you want between 3pm and 8pm. Stay for as long or as short a time as you like, start at whatever level you feel comfortable at, and finally become literate! For more information, go to the Kumon website (http://www.kumon.ne.jp), follow the link that gets you to the English page, and then click on "contact us". Fill out the form and ask any questions that you like.

The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
