J-kenkyu - advanced Japanese conversation class

  • Wellington City Council 100 Wakefield Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

The next J-Kenkyuu meeting on  July 26 Wed. from 6pm-8:30pm at Wellington City Council, Committee Room Two. There is no fee to attend.

While there will be some parts of the meeting in English, a large part of the time will be spent either watching videos in Japanese or having discussions in Japanese on the assigned topic. Therefore, while it may be a little overwhelming for those with a Beginner level of Japanese, anyone who wants to learn is welcome.

The topic for July will be the struggles of working in the Anime industry in Japan. While Japan’s anime are well-known and loved around the world, there is a darker side to the anime industry: the poor working conditions. We will watch a video about those who love working on anime but are struggling to survive. The video will also touch on what the government is doing to improve the situation.

Numbers are limited so please RSVP your attendance to this event to
