This is the Part 3 of our introduction to the Japanese language and culture for students with very limited prior experience. Perhaps you took the part 1 with us earlier this spring, part 2 in the summer or had similar courses elsewhere?
In this introductory level, students will continue to be introduced to basic sentence structure and vocabulary to be able to engage in simple conversation involving greetings and basic background information. Basic vocabulary, elementary conversation, and simple sentence structure are taught in Romaji (Japanese written phonetically in the Roman alphabet) while Hiragana (a Japanese syllabary) continues to be introduced.
