    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Uchida-sensei is very friendly and willing to explain concepts to us no matter how ridiculous our questions were.

    Course highlights:

    From romaji to hiragana to katakana. It may seem like too much at first but it's spaced out so that it's easy to learn. You will also learn grammar and vocab.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study. Even if it seems easy. study. Study at least fifteen minutes a day. And go to class or you won't understand what's going on.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning the Japanese language. The professor is easy to interact with, and he teaches the course in a manner which makes it easy for someone who is brand new to the language to pick up on it, just so long as you make sure to do the work assigned and practice what's taught, such as writing the characters for the language.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course, I learned the two basic writing systems for Japanese, hiragana and katakana, basic vocabulary, such as the different greetings that depend upon the time of day during which you are greeting someone, and I also learned a bit in regards to the culture.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise practicing the two basic types of writing for Japanese outside of class, practice the vocabulary, and see about practicing speaking the language with a friend as well. If you feel you're doing well on the current topics and writing, try to practice writing kanji ahead of time, as this tends to be the challenging part of Japanese writing for those who are new to the language. If questions come to mind, don't feel shy about asking the professor.
