Comprehensive Japanese Language/Culture Lower Begin. Class 2 Pt 3 (Age 13-18)
Samuel Brinkerhoff, M.A.Ed
This is the second class designed to help someone not only to become fluent but also understand the culture and all the writing systems. They will study in an upbeat and interactive way, where all students will feel comfortable and engaged.
With a little bit of experimenting, I have combined two learning methods into one, both to help the learner succeed and master the Japanese language and understand the Japanese culture.

I received my undergraduate degree in the Japanese language, culture, and history. I also earned my Master's degree in K-12 education. I studied abroad at Nihon University in Tokyo as well as worked as an English teacher in Niigata, Japan. I was able to see what I learned firsthand
Homework OfferedStudents will be given worksheets to print out after the class to reinforce their learning.

Assessments OfferedI do not routinely give an assessment at the end of the class. However, if a student or parent would like an assessment, they may request one by emailing me.
