One of the JASM’s important missions is to support Americans who want to learn Japanese and get to know Japan more. We know there are so many who always study and read about Japan. As we hit our 50th Anniversary of our organization, we created this Japan-focused trivia for anyone who is learning about Japan.
Our goal for J-Quiz is to encourage people to continue their study of Japanese language and culture and have a place to share with like-minded people.
What is J-Quiz?
There will be 30 questions regarding Japan and Japanese languages. The participants can join these fun quizzes to test their knowledge!
This event also has information regarding the colleges who offer Japanese classes and offers cultural exhibition videos where experts will share their knowledge and skills. With Hopin’s “networking” function, you can meet and chat with people who are learning Japanese and share ideas or ask questions.
J-Quiz is free to participate, but JASM appreciates your donation.
