Fall 2013 - Hiragana and Katakana Workshop

Printer-friendly versionSend by email


The mini-classes offer the beginning students of Japanese the opportunity to master quickly and efficiently the reading and writing 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.
