    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher was tough but fair and willing to try and help you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a basic understanding of Japanese language, but we also learned a bit about the culture and that was really helpful in understanding.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the reading and memorization. If you can, start trying to memorize the letters before you even start.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Great teacher, knows her stuff. But seems like a better professor for upper level Japanese courses. Participation does count for grade so make sure to be engaged. Read the textbook whenever told to so you know a little of the topic before the lesson instead of not knowing anything. It will help you understand faster.

    Course highlights:

    The class was very small so she helped out quite a bit. We did partner work everyday which made it easier to learn. I previously took Japanese in high school so I knew most of the things she taught us. But I feel like if you've never taken Japanese before, you shouldn't take this course for summer just because it is accelerated. With that being said, we did learn a lot everyday so try not to miss any classes.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do study everyday so that you will gradually learn the basics of Japanese. If you cram, it will be harder to stick in your head because it is a new language. I had tests every week so if you also happen to have them every week just say on top of it. Don't slack off or it might be hard to catch up.
