Daily Happenings at the ACC

Asian Language Learning Program Virtual Offerings

For Spring 2021, we will only offer one language class: Japanese Conversation. Class will run virtually from February 1 to April 26.

Interested in learning an Asian language and about Asian cultures? The ACC can help! Our informal classes are taught by volunteer teachers and focus on vocabulary, grammar, and basic survival phrases, in addition to an introduction of cultural customs and background. All classes are held at the Asian Culture Center. 

To register for these free classes, please email acc@indiana.edu.

Mondays, 3-4 pm, beginning Feb. 1 until April 26
This is a beginner level class, but it is very flexible and can accommodate students' needs based on their current knowledge of Japanese. The goal of this class is to provide an informal, open-learning environment where students can review basic Japanese or learn a bit of the Japanese language for the first time. To register, please email acc@indiana.edu.
