Support Menu 1 “Japanese Conversation Session” (online)
▶ For students who want to practice Japanese conversation with native speakers
This is a fun session to practice Japanese conversation with a Japanese native speaker!
All levels of Japanese are welcome, from beginner to advanced.
How you use it is up to you.
Daily conversation practice, questions about Japanese culture and customs, questions about Japanese grammar, and anything else you want to know.
However, the SLA is not a specialist in Japanese language education and will answer the questions as a native Japanese speaker.
Each session is 30 minutes long.
Reservations are required.

Support Menu 2 “Writing Support” (online)
▶ For students who want to improve their Japanese writing
 (Mainly for students up to the first year of master’s degree)
Our SLA in charge of academic writing will provide individualized support for you.
We can help with your essays, homework, research proposals, and any other documents written in Japanese.
In addition to checking the Japanese language after writing, we also offer consultation on the conceptualization stage before starting to write.
Each session is 45/60 minutes long.
Reservations for online appointments required. Walk-ins welcome.

Support Menu 3 “English Conversation Session” (online)

This is a fun session to practice speaking English through conversation and games.
This session can be used not only for daily conversation, but also for presentation and interview practice.

Support Menu 4 “Learning Support for Science Subjects”
▶ For students who need support in studying science subjects
(Primarily for first and second year undergraduates, or for students in humanities and social science fields)
We support a wide range of basic education subjects such as “physics”, “mathematics” and “chemistry” of basic education courses.
You can use our services when you have questions about your class assignments and reports, or about your independent study.
We focus on thinking together and finding your challenges rather than teaching you the answers.

No reservation is required, and you use our service in person on site during business hours.

The schedule and application will be announced on the Student Affairs Information System and other ways in the month before the event.

◇How to Reserve the SLA Support (online)
Please go to the reservation site to book your appointment. You can select your preferred support and date and time, filling out the required information.
Booking for every session requires a Tohoku University DC email account. It will be conducted via Google Meet or Zoom, but sometimes in person.
Our activities will take place mainly in the afternoons from Monday to Friday during the school term. We accept reservations up to a week in advance on the reservation site.
In order to provide support to as many students as possible, we limit the number of appointments you can make at the same time to only one. After the support is completed, you can make a new appointment.
Please follow “@sla_tomosodachi” on twitter, where we will update on the reservation site. We also provide other useful information for learning.
