8 weeks, 90 minutes each class.

Thursdays from 4:00-5:30


Beginner Japanese (for credit/elective)

Thursdays: 4:00-5:30 pm

This is the follow up from Absolute Beginner Japanese. To be successful in this class, students should have taken Absolute Beginner Japanese or should:

  • know how to read and write romaji,

  • have studied hiragana, 

  • know how to ask and answer basic questions using 'desu'

  • and count to 999.

The class will continue to develop conversation skills, add grammatical patterns and vocabulary, and will begin studying katakana. This student-centered class uses games, songs, role play and small group work to acquire language skills effectively and efficiently. Students should expect to spend about 1 hour per week practicing outside of class, especially if they are taking the class for credit.
