Beginner Japanese Classes! $40 for four two hour classes.

These series of classes will take part once a week (every Monday) at CommunityWise Resource Centre and is taught by members of the wonderful U of C Japanese conversation club!
Lessons will be taught at the Communitywise Resource Centre in the Dance Studio, which is unfortuntely not wheelchair accessible.
If you are planning to take this series, attendance to all classes is expected, as you can't grasp a full understanding of the language with partial attendance.
If you have prior knowledge of being unable to attend one class please e-mail yyc ! informallearning | gmail ! com to see if we can make an arrangement, although class attendence is strongly encouraged.
Please be prepared to either pay $40 at the first class, or if preferable e-transfer, before attending class.
If you are unable to pay the full fee please e-mail yyc ! informallearning | gmail ! com and we be able to waive all or part of the fee for this class as we believe money should not be a barrier to education. There is no forms for this as we believe all people are worthy of trust.

We acknowledge that all gatherings of CSIE take place on Treaty 7 land - traditional lands of the Nations of the Blackfoot Confederacy, including the Kainaiwa, Sik’sik’a, and piigani; the Tsuut’ina; the Lyarhe Nakoda, including the Chiniki, Wesley, and Bearspaw bands, as well as the Metis Nation Zone 3. Many promises were honoured and broken in the making of this treaty, and we thank the caretakers of this land for future generations.
Safer Space Standards
CSIE does not tolerate discriminatory or abusive behaviour, and a participant may be removed from any event if they do not follow our safer space standards outlined below. These will also be posted at each event for participant reference.
Use Correct Pronouns
We will have nametags for attendees to write pronouns on. For example, They/Them, She/Her, They/He, etc.
We will also go over names and pronouns at the start of each class.
Physical Boundaries – Respect others’ boundaries by asking first. Eg. ask before hugging someone. “No” is always an acceptable response and must be respected.
No Offensive Jokes
Jokes that “punch down” (i.e. take aim at a marginalized community) are not acceptable here.
Not Tolerated: Racism, Sexism, Transphobia, Ableism, etc.
Participation is not mandatory.
You do not have to participate in everything asked. You always have the option to pass on activities in the class.
Not Every Event is for Everyone
Some events will specify they are for specific groups (eg. Queer Craft Night). If you are not in the group specified, wait to attend one of our other events.
If our standards need an update, let us know. and e-mail yyc ! informallearning | gmail ! com for any clarification.
