IJC Japanese Katakana: Write Your Name in Japanese

Mr. Kelsey P. ケルシー先生
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(350)
Curious about Japanese kana (hiragana and katakana)? Ever wanted to know what your name would look and sound like in Japanese? Join us in this one-time class where we will learn how to write, say, and even type out our names in katakana!

Class Experience

Students will become familiar through reading and writing with a number of Japanese pronunciation rules, as well as general patterns and stroke order of katakana characters.
I studied Japanese language, culture, history, and economics both at home (Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota) and a year abroad (Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka, Japan). I returned to Japan after graduating to live for another three years in Kagawa prefecture, Shikoku, where I worked in language instruction and Japanese-English translation. I attained certification in the 2nd highest level of the internationally recognized Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), and twice sat in for the 1st level. 

My teaching experience in language instruction (where I also often implement the Natural Approach and TPR) continues to this day in private lessons for both children and adults in ESL, Japanese language learning, and JLPT test prep. For Japanese, this includes literacy in kanji and the language's other character sets, as well as comprehension and production in both informal and business-level conversation. It also means a top-down approach to deconstructing, studying for, and tackling the JLPT for those students looking to take their Japanese to the next level and even get this important certification that can land them a job abroad. (Feel free to contact me for more information about the JLPT and suggestions on whether or not it may be right for your learner's language goals.)

 1 file available upon enrollment
I have provided a Japanese character handwriting template that can be downloaded and printed out for use in class. However, students are also welcome to use their own paper or a whiteboard instead if desired. Please be sure to use a fat-edge pen (or marker if using a whiteboard) in order for the teacher and other students to more easily see the characters that will be written and shown on camera.
