But the moderator won't bog down the discussion with tiny corrections of grammar or word choice the point is to practice real communication in Japanese.
Chat events are offered once a month at two skill levels (Beginner 2/Intermediate and Intermediate/Advanced), and are moderated by a JOI teacher.
The moderator keeps the conversation flowing and offers help if you stumble over how to say something in Japanese.
If so, then join the ICC にほんごペラペラクラブ, Japanese Chat Club, where you can enjoy talking with Japanese students who want to actively communicate with you in Japanese.
For those who don’t like always having to meet and get to know new people, the club-style of this program means that each time you can continue chatting with the same members.
Using the free chat events, quizzes and teachers’ blogs is a great way to supplement the classes.
