New skill unlocked: QCPL is offering free Japanese lessons

The self-improvement agenda is in full swing, kids. If you’re all about learning during this time of your life (read: going through all those free online classes), then the Quezon City Public Library (QCPL) is your friend. Education consultancy company Jellyfish Education Philippines and the QCPL are currently offering basic Japanese language classes, like what they did in previous years including 2022—which, according to them, garnered 16,000 sign-ups. Don’t worry, sessions will be held via Zoom and are free of charge.

If you’re at least 18 years old, have a gadget (laptop, desktop, or smartphone) with a stable internet connection, and a Zoom account, then you can register for a session. The first one will start on Apr. 17 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., while the other remaining sessions are scattered throughout the year until December. Do note, though, that they are on a first-come, first-served basis, and only the first 500 successful registrants will be accepted per class. 

You’ll receive a confirmation email if you make the cut, and have to confirm your slot within 24 hours. Otherwise, your slot will be offered to other applicants. Once finalized, use your official name on Zoom to be recognized properly by the class moderator. At the end of it, you get a digital certificate making your participation tangible, plus a new skill: The ability to consume Japanese media better? An achievement Duo (yes, the Duolingo Owl) will be proud of? The possibilities are endless. 

To sign up, accomplish their registration form. Check out the complete list of dates on QCPL’s Facebook page and reach out to Ernani Agulto via email ([email protected]) for any questions.
