the Real Conversation Practice
One of our favorite and most convenient tools used at Blue House is the Slack App.
This free App can be downloaded on both your phone and computer and is a perfect way to communicate with your classmates and teachers at any time and from anywhere.
Perfect for the soldier on temporary duty travel, or if you have to miss a class due to work, sickness, emergency, etc.
You can message your fellow classmates or teachers about any assignments or lessons you may have missed, and you will never feel out of the loop because of a missed class.
Slack is such a beneficial part of our program because it gives our students the means to practice Japanese with each other outside of class.
It’s also a great way to get to know and chat with your classmates to find out which festivals they love to attend, about the best places to eat, or get recommendations for the best hiking spots in Okinawa!
The Slack is our main communication app among students and teachers where you can ask questions about the class or while you're studying Japanese off the class. You can also tell us when you'll be late to the class or you won't be able to make it.
Since we share the informations of Japanese learning hints and practice conversations in Japanese on Slack, We strongly recommend to install both on your phone and on your computer.
So that you can send instant messages on your phone and you can self-study on your computer with links and helpful resources we share to help you study at home.
