Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is a wonderfully taught class on the introduction to Japanese. She teaches the subject very well and is very knowledgeable about the subject. Japanese is her native language and is very enthusiastic about teaching it to students at the university.
The highlights of the course if that she brings in dishes that are Japanese, so students get an opportunity to try food from Japan. She also teaches the basics of Japanese which is really helpful when trying or planning on going abroad to Japan. She teaches the written language as well as practice in how to speak it. There are also lots of competition opportunities that she offers to the students for extra practice in the language.

Advice for students:
I would say in order to succeed in the course to always do the assignment that is being given, and challenge yourself with it. The assignments are relatively easy but if a little more effort is put into it, its a great way to challenge yourself and further learn the language. Also study the kanji a lot, she doesn't emphasis kanji a lot in the course, but she is implying that the students study it on their own. Study the kanji because a lot of Japanese is the kanji.
