Do you love anime? Do you love Japanese culture and fashion? Is your dream going to Japan? Do you want to interact on a more meaningful level with the Japanese people?
THIS IS THE PERFECT COURSE FOR YOU!
We are organising a 8-session, two hour per session Japanese Elementary course this June hols. We took Japanese language to “AO” level and studied Japanese for about 5 years. =) If you want to know more about Japan/are visiting Japan/want to understand the anime you’re watching this elementary Japanese course is for you!!お楽しみね～☆★
Our focus in this short elementary course is actually conversation, because it is the most practical tool to have when you go to Japan. (Although we would be doing a fair bit of writing as well, but we spend a bit more time on conversation here) Afterall, most could write better than they speak when they learn a language, but communication on a meaningful level depends on speaking most of the time.
