Have you always wanted to learn Japanese, but were unsure where to start? Come for a Japanese Trial Lesson for Beginners, taught by the Toyota Language Center’s Director, Tomoyo Kamimura. This lesson is structured for complete beginners of Japanese. If you are not a complete beginner, please take a look at the Japanese Level Guide for information about our courses, or email [email protected] with your questions.

Due to this being a language learning event, we highly recommend having your video on if possible. We do ask that every participant is able to participate via their microphone. If you do not have this capability, please contact us at [email protected].

She has been teaching Japanese at universities both in the US and Japan for over 15 years. Ms. Kamimura has numerous publications and has served as co-editor of Ohbunsha’s Japanese – English Dictionary. Previously, she was coordinator of The New School’s Japanese program.
