    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is extremely engaging for a first-year Japanese course I would highly recommend starting the summer before studying hiragana Katakana

    Course highlights:

    Learning to read write and understand the language of the Japanese they will start with romanji but it will only last for the first semester after that it goes to full Japanese I recommend learning hit again and cut the kind of early so that you can go straight to Japanese

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study with others work together make sure your home works good because they will push the homework heavily

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I have learned a lot through this school- although most of my learning so far has been outside of the classroom. The teachers do what they can, but through the clubs and my job on campus, I have learned more and been able to expand my knowledge that way.

    Course highlights:

    It has really forced me to open my eyes more to how the world works.Most teachers are willing to provide you any help you need if you're willing to seek it. Most classes are challenging enough but not impossible.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are still some classes offered if you need an easy A for gen ed or credit requirements. There are plenty of majors to explore.There are plenty of clubs and organizations to join that will either promote diversity or provide a place for it. It's not perfect, but it is on its way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course because not only are the instructors very nice, the class gets you involved with the culture and allows you to interact with native Japanese thinkers.

    Course highlights:

    We learned both hiragana and katakana, as well as some kanji. We also learned quite a bit about the sentence structures and grammar of the language. We focused on certain Japanese customs and events to better understand the culture.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take the time to study. Flash cards are your best friends, and it might even help to make up a song to help you memorize everything.
