Prepare for
the Zoom Language Exchange

So you found your Zoom Language Exchange buddies!
Congratulations!

Are you excited?
Or are you little nervous?

Let's prepare for it to make the most of it.

Our Recommendation

We recommend to use Zoom and our worksheets for the Language Exchange but you can use any other tools if you’d like.

 

 

Just keep it mind that we only have tutorials for Zoom and our worksheets in Japanese for Japanese members.

They might know how to use Zoom and worksheets but might not know about any other tools.

 

So if you decide to use any other tools, then you might need to explain your buddies how to use them before the session or during the session.

 

 

Our recommendations is to use any kind of flashcards/textbook pdf/vides/audios that has both Japanese and English on your screen to share with your buddies.

 

 

That way you and your buddies don’t have to have the awkward moments like:

“I don’t know what to talk…”

“I’m out of topics…”

 

Or after the session:

“It was a good session! But I don’t remember what I learned…”

“I talked a lot but I didn’t learn anything new…”

 

 

So prepare your Japanese study materials, questions that you guys can work on and don’t forget to study it beforehand.

 

 

Your preparation will make the session smooth for you and your buddies 🙂

 

 

 

“By Failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

-Benjamin Franklin

 

Set Up Zoom

Let’s set up your Zoom account if you don’t have one.

Open the Worksheets

Open up Study Room > your course > your lesson > worksheets PDF.

Run a Test

Now Zoom is set up and your worksheets is ready, so let's run a test!

Go ahead and start the Zoom meeting on your own and check your microphone, camera, background and try sharing your screen.

Oh, don't forget to allow participants to share their screen.


Or if you'd like to share any other Japanese study materials or questions on your screen, go ahead and share them as a test.


Everything works good?
Great job!

Let's go next!

Send Zoom Invitation


Send your buddies the Zoom invitation via comment or direct message at least a couple days prior.

As you're excited to meet them over Zoom, they're also excited!

But people forget things in this super busy days so send them the Zoom invitation to remind them that you guys have the Zoom Language Exchange 🙂
