About Talkpoint

Talkpoint.org is a FREE website for English and Japanese language learners designed to increase cultural awareness and improve practical communication skills.

This website provides a place where students of Japanese and English can post answers to different made up situations (Talkpoints). This is stuff you won't find in a textbook.

Hey! You will not believe what just happened to me. I was in a rush to get here and all this stuff happened and then I missed the train... what? It's only 12:05? oh, really? I thought it was much later. Well never mind then. I'm so psyched to eat out - anything other than dining hall food! Let's go! Let's go! Let's go!

It is easy to participate. The most interesting form of participation is when two or more teachers from different parts of the world organize classes so students can post and discuss their responses. Teachers wishing to do this should complete the free teacher registration.

Even if you don't belong to a class, you can still participate in an open talkpoint after you complete the free student registration.
