Tokyo Tech Nihongo Space

About our activities:
"Nihongo Space" has been supporting international students in their study of the Japanese language since the second half of AY2018. The initiative began with support offered by faculty and staff members only, but since AY2019, language partners, volunteer Tokyo Tech students interested in language and international exchange, have also joined to practice Japanese conversation, offer tutoring in written Japanese, and give advice on how to study the language. Nihongo Space is held on Wednesday and Thursday (12:30-14:00) at the International Student Lounge of West Bldg. 1 (currently offered online only).
