Who We Are

Japanese Culture
WA asbl vzw

Corona crises started in the beginning of 2020, rampaged around the world through the whole year and seems not yet reduce its violent power.
It caused fatal damages to human beings as victims and also to our society: huge number of dead and sufferers of the diseases, damage to our human relationship because of the prohibit of physical contact, of keeping distance and of the crack between generations. We were obliged to change our life style to appropriate these protection policies and maybe our view of life too.
Despite of these negative atmosphere, some volunteers have founded NPO Japanese Culture WA.

Conversation Table

Language is an important part of our culture. But Japanese language.... oh my god... it's so difficult to learn!

Even you learn the basics, it's also difficult to parctice in Belgium.

For those brave learners, we are happy to offer opportunities to speak in the relaxed atmosphere with native Japanese speakers as volunteers.

The focus is more on speaking and communicating than correcting mistakes all the time.

So, just relax and let the conversation flow.

You can make new friends around the table!
