Language Center Event

Friday, November 8, 6–7:30 PM

Join Japanese-language students and native Japanese speakers at this informal gathering to practice Japanese and English! Anyone with some Japanese language skill is welcome to attend.

For 30 minutes during the November meeting, Tomoko Yagi will demonstrate how she makes a Japanese sweet called nerikiri. Yagi’s curiosity of wagashi stems from both her tea studies (Urasenke School of sado) and from her experience as a certified nutritionist in Japan. She has worked as a Japanese food consultant for restaurants such as Sobaya, Cha An teahouse, and TIC Restaurant Group in New York’s East Village. Tomoko also teaches classes on wagashi at the Nippon Club and at Cha-An Classes.

Admission (cash only):
With RSVP: Free for current Language Center students and university students with a valid student ID, or $5 for non-students
Without RSVP: $10

RSVP required to [email protected] or 212-715-1269 with your name, email address, telephone number, and Japanese level (beginner, intermediate, advanced, native).

The Nihongo Chat + J-Culture series is presented in partnership with New York University, Hunter College and Baruch College. This program is generously supported by The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles.
