Meeting People; Ordering Food; Asking for Directions; and Shopping were the exciting topics being covered in our FIRST “Japanese for Travelers” Summer language classes. In an exclusive offer for JASH members and their guests, JASH is pleased to have partnered with Academia Language School to offer discounted rates for attendees participating in this four-part educational series. Each 90-minute class, conducted on Wednesday evenings from June 5th to 26th, 2019, focused on the fore-mentioned topics and should prepare those traveling to Japan with enough Japanese language skill to converse with Japan natives during their trip. The first session has recently ended. However, if you are interested in signing up for a future Japanese language session or would like more information, please contact Lila Frisbie – JASH Director of Membership and Programs at lfrisbie@jashawaii.org or (808) 524-4450.
