We were a little late in announcing it but better late than never! We are excited to announce that registration for JETAABC Japanese Language Classes for the fall term is now open! We are happy to be able to offer another term online. We hope that as conditions improve, we will once again be able to offer you in-person classes in the near future, however for this fall term, it will be conducted online again. Classes will start on November 16th 2021 from 6:00 -8:00 pm. It’s coming up fast! As we are condensing the term this time, it will happen twice a week.

Virtual Classroom:
The classes will be done online through Zoom and will utilize all available functions (i.e.polling, whiteboard, breakout rooms, etc) to maximize engagement and interaction between students and the teacher. For optimal language learning in the virtual classroom, students are kindly requested to have their cameras turned on. If you are new to Zoom, the Course Coordinator will be present at all the class to assist you with any technical difficulties you may encounter. This way, all students can focus on the content of the class.
