Hi all

I am looking for a playgroup for my son who is 14 months old. Because I am currently undertaking a long time dream of learning Japanese, I am always looking for more ways to immerse myself in the culture and language. As i learn, I hope that DS will start picking up bits and pieces too, because as he gets older i would like for him to have a second language. So I thought a Japanese playgroup would be great, either a Japanese speaking play group, or a playgroup that has Japanese lessons/play with someone speaking exclusively in Japanese would be perfect.....

First of all wondering if anyone knows of the latter?

Secondly, I have found a few through playgroups nsw for Japanese speaking parents, but I am wondering if I would be imposing since my language skills are basic.... Does anyone have an opinion from attending any languages other than English playgroups?

I think Japanese parents would be happy to welcome you to the group, just like you would welcome someone who is learning English :) It's not imposing at all in my view, even if you can only communicate basics it's okay you can just watch the kids and enjoy the time together anyway.

What a lovely idea! I always thought I'd love my future children to learn a second language, and Japanese is an especially useful one it could open up a lot of doors in the future :) Good luck x
