Japanese-English Reading Circle in Shadyside continues from July 7.

The Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania's Japanese-English Reading Circle will begin again with a new series of four meetings from July 7 at Kenmawr Apartments in Shadyside.
Join us for the Japanese-English Reading Circle.

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.
The meetings are held every other Saturday in July and August (and at many other times throughout the year) from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. The apartment complex at 401 Shady Ave. (map) has a large number of Japanese residents who work and study in the city, and often hosts cultural events for its international residents.
