Japanese - Beginners’ Class

starts again on 20th September following summer break

This introductory course is intended for people with very limited or no knowledge of the Japanese language. Through a conversational approach, we build up a simple working knowledge of the language and learn about its structure including many useful set phrases. Reference to the complex writing system will be made but studying it is not part of this course. Frequent reference will be made to aspects of the country and its culture to complement our learning and for general information. Students are welcome to contribute anything they feel appropriate and of interest to the lessons. Suggestions for further study practice will be made. 

Course fee: £3 per person per lesson.

Through a conversational approach, we continue our study of the language to more complex levels and, should sufficient number of people be interested, we will learn to use the writing system. Frequent reference will be made to aspects of the country and its culture and students are welcome to contribute anything they feel appropriate and of interest to the lessons. Suggestions for further study practice will be made. 

Course fee: £3 per person per lesson.
