Beginning Japanese  

The Beginner class will explore basic grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation through situational dialogues on topics such as shopping, making acquaintances, dining out, and more. Vocabulary lists with the corresponding basic Hiragana characters will help you learn to read and pronounce Japanese. The required textbook: Japanese for Busy People I: Romanized Versionwith CD, is available at the Brookline Booksmith. The Beginner 2 level uses the same textbook and is for those who want to further their knowledge of Japanese, but do not yet feel ready for the Intermediate level. The Intermediate level will help improve your ability to use Japanese accurately and appropriately with fluency, building on the basic skills you have learned. We will focus on reading comprehension, spoken fluency, and composition, with materials organized around social and cultural topics. You will learn about 50 Kanji characters. The required textbook: Genki: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese II, Second Edition, is available online.
