Japanese Class - Beginning II

Japanese class beginning series (I - IV) 12 classes

Japanese Class Beginning II :  Instructor Shigeko Honda sensei

The Beginning Series focuses primarily on the development of basic conversational skills and an understanding of Japanese as it is currently spoken in Japan. Topics covered include introductions, giving opinions, asking permission, expressing preferences, and giving and receiving. Either hiragana (Beg I) or katakana (Beg II) is introduced, and the student should be able to read and produce both accurately upon completion of this series of classes. Please note that Beginning I is for students with NO previous Japanese experience. Beginning II and Beginning III assume some familiarity with the language.

The required textbook for the Beginning Series is Japanese for Busy People (JBP), Volume 1, Rev. 3rd edition (Romanized version for Beg I & II students):

Beginning 1: Lessons 1-7 (Unit 1-3) Hiragana
Beginning 2: Lessons 8-14   (Unit 4-6) Katakana
Beginning 3: Lessons 15-21  (Unit 7-9) Hiragana & Katakana
Beginning 4: Lessons 22-25  (Unit 10-11) and
comprehensive review

Some classes use the Japanese for Busy People (JBP) Kana Workbook. The Kana workbook is used for a self-stydy tool to learn how to read and write properly using the attached CD.

Note: Students can choose "kana" or "romanized" versions. However, Kana version might be challenging at first for those who are taking Beginning I and II classes. We recommend that the students purchase the "Romanized" version textbook for Beginning I & II classes and students purchase the Kana version textbook for Beginning III & IV classes.
