Course Description

Conversational Japanese for Beginners is a 101-level course focused on more casual learning. This class concentrates less on grammar or script memorizing and is more geared towards learning Japanese for travel or other less formal uses.

Each class will cover one unit of the textbook, “Nihongo Fun & Easy,” with one lesson each week, covering a total of ten units over the course of ten weeks. Class meetings are held online weekly from 6:00–7:30pm via Zoom.

Every phrase and sentence comes with pronunciation guide (Romanized characters) in this textbook, so students can start speaking without having to memorize all of the Hiragana, Katakana, nor Kanji characters. The students will learn how to introduce themselves, ask directions, ask questions about prices when shopping, making requests and requesting permission, learn what to say at the restaurant, and so on – a lot of expressions useful while traveling in Japan. (Learn practical Japanese in an easy and more relaxed mode.)
