Japanese 1-B


    (for students with no or little basic grammar knowledge in Japanese, meets once a week)

    Japanese Level 1:
    The course is designed to introduce elementary Japanese to students with no previous background in the language. Basic vocabulary, grammar and sentence structures will be taught in romaji (Japanese written phonetically in the Roman alphabet) so students can carry on a simple conversation. Hiragana and some introductory kanji will be introduced.

    Students will be introduced to the following:
    X wa Y desu.
    Question sentences
    Here/there/over there/where
    Verb conjugation (present tense)
    Sentence particles
