Spring 2012 - Hiragana and Katakana Workshop

Printer-friendly versionSend by email


These mini-workshops 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.

Hiragana Workshop:   Sunday,  1/8/2012      2:00pm - 4:00pm    Registration deadline: 1/7/2012

Katakana Workshop:   Sunday, 1/22/2012    2:00pm - 4:00pm    Registration deadline: 1/21/2012

The handout will be prepared for the workshops. 
We recommend that the participants who plan to take Japanese Beginning I and II classes in the Spring 2012 purchase Kana Workbook (rev. 3rd Ed.) along with the textbook "Japanese for Busy People" (JBP), (Vol 1, Rev. 3rd Ed)

The Hiragana and katakana workshops are taught by Ms. Chihiro Kamei Legris, who has taught the JASGA Hiragana and Katakana classes in Summer 2011 and Intermediate I and Pre-advanced II in Fall 2011.
