The program also offers several workshops throughout the year that focuses on specific themes (travel tips, tv shows, etc)  or particular structure of the language (the use of des, particles,  the writing characters, etc). 

These Japanese classes will be conducted via Zoom. Attendees must have a device with audio and video capabilities, as well as an internet connection.
