This year we will be repeating our 2021 Japanese taster event with Dr Moretti & current Emmanuel students!

This event is no longer accepting applications.


In March 2022, students are invited to get a taste of University study of Japanese. At Cambridge, this is part of the AMES course). Both workshops will be held on Zoom.

Both sessions are aimed at beginner level students. Those with formal experience of Japanese may not find these taster sessions useful. Dr Moretti will lead both sessions. We will also be joined by 2 current Emmanuel students in each session.

  • 17 March17:00-18:00: Japanese writing
