Japanese classes for downtown

   Seattle business people who engage in commerce with Japan are now able to take advantage of a program that brings Japanese classes to a easy-to-reach downtown location.

   Beginning in January 1999, the University of Washington's Japanese Program for Professionals (JPP) is offering a class which will meet at the Seattle Jaycees, at 109 West Mercer, from 7:30-8:30 a.m. Monday-Thursday. New classes begin Jan., 4, 1999. JPP will also set up a class at a given company if a minimum of ten students sign up.

   For additional information on the classes, call 543-7610, or check the JPP website at: http://www.tjp.washington.edu.
