    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course since the class was interesting and was not that difficult since the professor took the time to make everything clear, such as certain Japanese grammar rules or sentence structures to follow.

    Course highlights:

    During this course we were taught the first half of the Genki Japanese Textbook. We learned the 2 Japanese alphabets (Hiragana and Katakana), about 30 Kanji characters, numbers, basic greetings, some adjectives, some verbs, and much more!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you memorize Hiragana and Katakana since they are crucial in later Japanese courses. Making notecards of the vocabulary and finding someone to study with is very helpful.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great into to the Japanese Language. Students will learn the Japanese writing system, useful vocabulary, and Japanese culture. The classroom is a fun, engaging environment and there are many speaking, writing, and listening activities to foster language development.

    Course highlights:

    By the end of Japanese 101 I had mastered hiragana, katakana, and numerous kanji. I learned how to introduce myself, talk about my daily routine, and discuss topics ranging from the weather to school. You will not be fluent after one course, but you will have an excellent foundation to continue studying.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to do the homework and you need to go to class. You will not learn nearly as much on your own with the book. Homework and quizzes are given frequently. If you do the homework, then you will be ready for the quizzes. If you do well on the quizzes and study, you should do fine on the exams. It can be easy not to practice listening activities at home, but you need to do this. Listening is a huge part of learning how to speak a language.
