    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Language courses need to be interactive and fun. That's what this class is all about. Professor Kubota is very understanding and will let you make up quizzes if you let her know ahead of time why you are going to be absent.

    Course highlights:

    The language itself and the culture of Japan are mended to demonstrate politeness and the importance of social structure.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please remember that college courses are your responsibility, and participation is very important in this class. In a language course, being left behind means that you have to teach yourself the material gone over in class. If you fall behind, please let your professor know and go to their office hours.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a change from the high-pace, large lecture classes UF offers. Learning a foreign language and culture gives you opportunities to appreciate the world and develop critical thinking skills. While Japanese may seem daunting, it is very enjoyable and there are many resources at the school to help facilitate your learning. Kubota Sensei is a strict yet knowledgeable teacher who is eager to see her students succeed and will help you get a good grasp of the language and culture.

    Course highlights:

    While the class meets everyday and there is always homework, it helps build on all four of the key skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. I liked the tight-knit classes because you got a chance to get to know your classmates well, as well as have practice partners. By the end of Beginning 1 Japanese you will have a good arsenal of vocabulary, be able to write a number of kanji, and have confidence in listening and reading. These skills will develop through continuous study.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study beyond completing the daily homework. Review vocabulary and practice kanji as often as possible. There are weekly language clinics where you can practice your speaking skills with older students and Japanese exchange students - take advantage of these chances even if you're shy!
