Class Experience

Learners will become familiar with and learn to read and write the 70 Katakana letters, as well as how to combine these letters to make additional sounds. In the course of doing so they will gain experience with recognizing letters in a variety of media and fonts, and gain skills in deciphering Japanese-ified English loan words (for example, スターウオーズ suta- uo-zu, "Star Wars"!). Learners will also take first steps into important introductory Japanese vocabulary words and phrases, and experience an overview of Japanese culture.
Learners can expect to spend 1-2 hours on homework each week. Some assignments will be through the free app Lingo Deer, and some will be short PDF worksheets which I will send out between classes. Learners will send photos of their completed worksheets back to me so that I can check their work.
Please designate a fresh notebook your Japanese notebook for this class, and bring that as well as a pen or pencil each week :)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
