Are you planning to visit Japan soon? Would you like to communicate with Japanese people by saying more than just Arigatoo (Thank you)?
This is a practical course, designed for absolute beginners, where you will develop basic speaking and listening skills in Japanese. Additionally, you will discuss Japanese culture and share your experiences based on the class topics (Greetings, Food, Towns and Shopping) to deepen your knowledge of Japan.
Once you have completed this course, you will be able to:
exchange basic greetings
give a simple self-introduction
order food and drinks
ask for directions while looking at a map
ask questions while shopping…etc.
Japanese scripts (hiragana and katakana) are introduced for the purpose of pronunciation, but not covered in this course.
This is a suitable ‘warm-up’ course if you are considering learning Japanese in the long-term.
