Course Details

This is an introductory course for people who haven't learned very much Japanese. Most class hours are spent on oral drills and a variety of other speaking activities. Participants are encouraged to practice communicating and exchanging information through studying model dialogues and acting them out. In addition, you will receive explanations and practice of basic grammar. Japanese characters (hiragana and katakana) will be studied mainly for reading recognition, although we will provide you with writing practice and encourage you to learn to write as soon as possible.
