I'd definitely join if it was over our neck of the woods (Tsuru, Otsuki, Fujiyoshida, (I'd might even go to Kawaguchi))  but it's too much of a trek. And I work evenings...
Wouldn't it be nice, to get on with my neighbours!

Aww, too bad! The classes other than the intermediate one I mentioned can be be worked into your own schedule since they're more like private/small group lessons, but I'm not sure whether there are any volunteers in your area to teach the class. I'd be happy to ask my Japanese teacher if you're interested, though!

Don't worry about it. I just talked to my co-worker about wanting to do some classes and she's offered. It means we can work it into our work schedule which is easiest.
Thanks for the offer.

â… 'll ask her but the problem is that we're doing it in our lunch breaks and after classes (10pm~). I'll see if we can try and make it more regular. What times are best for you?
