Joins us for two more exciting virtual JIS workshops in the month of May!

On Tuesday, May 11th at 4:00 PM (PT) we will host V-JIS: Hanako.

Join us as we follow a Japanese junior high school student, Hanako, through her school day. Learn about a typical day at a Japanese Junior High school and some basic Japanese vocabulary. Also, discuss some cultural similarities and differences between junior high schools in Japan and the U.S.

On Tuesday, May 25th at 4:00 PM (PT) we will host V-JIS: Shopping – Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Edition

What is shopping like in Japan?  How is it different and similar to shopping in the United States? What are some useful phrases for shopping in Japanese? Join us as we go on a shopping adventure through Japan to learn the answers to these questions and more. 

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.  

In honor of this we have updated our JIS and VJIS presentations to include a vital diversity and inclusion component.  The mission of the Society and our education programs has always been to deepen friendship and cultural understanding.  Now more than ever, these lessons are needed to #StopAsianHate.
