Let's Talk Program

The Let's Talk Program is a program where you can enjoy intercultural exchange through free talk in foreign languages. All learners of any age and language level are welcome to join. Let's Talk is a free program and there's no need to apply. Please feel free to join us. Depending on the language, there will be set themes to help start conversation. Please see below for program content of each language and check "Calendar" or "News from the Plaza" on the top page for the program schedule. "News from the Plaza" is distributed free of charge at the salon, and downloading from here (PDF) is also possible.

※ This program is not a structured foreign language lesson. The Coordinator for International Relations (CIR) will serve as a facilitator to smoothly manage the program.
