Welcome! ようこそ!

Welcome to the homepage of JCSA, the oldest language exchange club in Toronto. The club focuses on hosting events in order to provide interested individuals the opportunities to learn Japanese or English from a native speaker of the respective languages. One example is the Language Exchange that is hosted every Saturday at University of Toronto.

***This event is for women ONLY!!

Do any of the following apply to you?
– You’ve met a new guy friend here in Canada, and he invited you out, but you don’t know what to do.
– You don’t have any interest in love or dating, but you want to understand the slang and keep up in conversations.
– You want to give good advice to your friends.
– You’re interested in someone but you’re not sure about your or their feelings and don’t know what to do.
– You don’t want to cause misunderstandings with someone, but you don’t know how to turn them down without hurting their feelings.

If so, this seminar could be for you. We’ll be exploring the differences in dating culture, and teach you how to communicate in these types of situations.

This is being brought to you by the following non-profit organizations: JCSA, JAVA, and ACAS. Things you want to learn about Canadian dating culture, things you should be careful of, love/dating related slang, practicing safe sex. While having tea, these are some of the topics we’ll be having a real discussion on in this workshop.

This lecture will be conducted in Japanese. Those who wish to increase their English vocabulary, either in regular words or slang, or who don’t have much confidence in their English ability are welcome to attend as well.
