    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Japanese is the most difficult language for native English speakers to learn. I would only recommend this course if you are a dedicated student and do not have extreme difficulties with learning languages. Japanese courses can be fun, but it is easy to ruin your GPA with Japanese because it is a 5 credit course with 40% of your grade being participation/daily grades.

    Course highlights:

    Japanese 1 gets you the basics of Japanese and you learn enough to have a conversation, but not with much depth. If you think that you will be able to read all of your favorite manga in Japanese or watch anime without subtitles do not take this course. Reading kanji does not really begin until the second semester and you will not be able to read at a high level until at least 3rd year Japanese.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you love languages and want a challenge go for it, but take it seriously. Japanese will not be like your Spanish, French, or even German courses, it is much more difficult and you will spend much more time studying.
