Japanese Hiragana Intensive - Spring 2021

1.5 hour Hiragana class                                    Instructor:  Kae Koike

Hiragana was developed from the cursive style of kanji in the beginning of the Heian era (794-1185).  Its function is to represent sound rather than meaning, and it is used to write native Japanese words as well as verb inflections, adjectival endings, etc.


These Intensive class offer the beginning student of Japanese the opportunity to master quickly and efficiently the reading of the two Japanese syllabaries, hiragana and katakana. It is these two writing systems, in combination with the more complex kanji (ideograms which represent meaning), which constitute the written Japanese language.
