    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    A language requirement should not be looked at as a chore. Japanese can be an interesting route to take if you have any previous interest from media or world events. This class has a lot of homework, fair quizzes and tests, and large projects at the end of the course.

    Course highlights:

    This course focused on Hiragana, Katakana, and about 30 Kanji. There is a lot of vocabulary and grammar focus, as well as culture awareness.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please go to class everyday and review before class. As long as you do your homework and study then the subject should be easier and fun. Enjoy the thought of communicating with your classmates, you will need to rely on them more than you would in other classes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Thompson is a great professor with a love for the Japanese language. He is always willing to help students better understand japanese, whether it be the vocabulary, grammar, or sentence structure. Professor Thompson also exposes us to japanese culture through videos, discussions, and presentations. This class is a great first impression into understanding the japanese language and culture

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I believe that myself and my fellow students gained the foundations for understanding the Japanese language. We learned several new vocabulary words and kanji, along with sentence structure, and grammar in our first semester. Even though it wasn't necessary to the course, Professor Thompson's explanations of Japanese Culture gave us a better understanding of the culture surrounding the language.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study! Study the vocab, the Kanji, and the rules surrounding the grammar points. It's not difficult, but you are learning a new language and studying for memorization is inevitable. Also, do the homework! the class uses the Genki textbooks and the worksheets help to solidify the lessons you learn in class.
