Class began on September 7, 2011 under OAA President, Kimiko
Goya, with the support of the Kamiya family and several
volunteers, including Chairperson Joan Oshiro. The founding of
the Computer Class initiated her dream of helping our senior
members enter the world of technology through the use of
computers and all of its capabilities: creating Word documents,
finding information on the Internet, Excel, E-mail, Skype,
Youtube, street directions, saving and sending photos, creating
address labels, Japanese newspaper access, finding songs for
Karaoke practice, photos of Ikebana arrangements, and the list
goes on and on.
The classes are unique in that individualize instruction is
given and taught in both Japanese and English. All computers
have been installed with Japanese language software. Thursday
and Friday classes are taught by Japanese speaking instructors
and Saturday class is taught in English and some Japanese.
Come and join us! Bring your own laptop or use our
computers. Thursday classes meet from 10am-12pm and 1-3pm.
Friday from 1pm - 3pm and Saturday from 10am – 12pm.
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED TO HELP TEACH THE BILINGUAL JAPANESE
COMPUTER CLASS. To volunteer, contact the OAA at (310) 532-1929
