In these classes you will learn the most essential language patterns used in everyday life through conversational patterns that are practical and real. You will be introduced to Japanese sentence structures and some culture to acquire a firm foundation for more advanced study. The two forms of the Japanese alphabet, Hiragana and Katakana, are not introduced in this class; however 20 Kanji characters are introduced in each of the four courses. Let’s explore the Japanese language world together.
This class will enable you to use action verbs (eat, see, listen, write, etc.), motion verbs (go, come, etc.) and state the existence of people and things. You will be able to explain your everyday activities - what you do, where you go, what/who are there, etc. And 20 new Kanji characters are introduced.
