Free & Informal Japanese-language Study in Edinburgh


Welcome to our volunteer-run, Japanese Language Study Club in Edinburgh.

Our Friday Study Club is open to all learners of Japanese Language, beginners to advanced and with Japanese Language resources available.

Started over two years ago by Jess, we currently meet on Fridays from 6-8pm in Starbucks on Princes Street in Edinburgh.

We are a friendly club which uniquely functions entirely in Japanese for that “total immersion” experience.

We ask Native Japanese speakers to come along to teach us and we pay for their drinks as a thank you for speaking to us purely in Japanese .
The group is “drop-in” and there are no attendance fees (although we do ask for a small donation from learners towards drinks for our Native Japanese volunteer teachers).

We are not a ‘language exchange’ group but if you are looking for somewhere to trade Japanese and English, do drop us a private message and we can point you in the direction of one of the many Edinburgh Language Exchange groups.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
