ESS is our monthly English conversation group. Our native English speakers and our Japanese speaking members come together to discuss various topics.
Our goal is to have our Japanese speakers talk 80% of the time.
What do we talk about?
We begin with our "Catching Up" section. Each member describes an interesting experience they recently had. Other embers are encouraged to ask questions about the experience.
In our second section, we discuss several paragraphs from Gil Asakawa"s book, "Being Japanese American." These paragraphs describe how Japanese culture and traditions have evolved among the Japanese American community in the United States.
