Have you ever been to Japan and got stuck? Do you want to go to Japan, but just too scared because you don't know the language? Well, have no fear this series will definitely help you. This course will bring you essential Japanese that you need to comfortably travel as well as provide you some history and culture behind the words as well. I really wish I'd had this series before I was living in Japan. I was thrown into Japanese life without any help, not knowing what to say or how to respond...
Students will know how to: 1. Say basic greetings (Good morning, afternoon, evening) 2. How to say goodbye. 3. Know the correct way to address people 4. Know how to introduce yourself for the first time 5. Say thank you and your welcome
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
Students will be given worksheets to print out after the class to reinforce their learning. Because this class meets once, this is optional and they have the choice to send their homework to me to look over. They will get a vocabulary list that goes over everything they have studied
Students will be emailed homework. I will use Kahoot as well, but they will get the Kahoot code from me.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I 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.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
