Virtual Japanese-English Reading Circle with Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania, continues from January 9.

The Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania's Japanese-English Reading Circle, which had in-person meetings in Shadyside prior to COVID-19, will resume again online from January 9.
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.
Virtual meetings are held roughly every two Saturdays---January 9, January 16, February 6, February 20, March 6, March 20---and those interested should email the JASP or connect with its Facebook or Google groups.
