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! Are you already there? Oh, sorry! I'm running a few minutes late for lunch. I hate to make you wait but I missed the train, and, well, you know how it is. I swear I really am trying to be better about these things. I'll be there as soon as the next train will get me there. Sorry again.

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.
