Super Happy 嬉しい Samurai Beginner Japanese Class

Let's meet up and learn basic Japanese words, numbers, sentences, phrases, slang and alphabet! During class we usually revisit the last session at the beginning to see if members retained what was learned the previous week and then a new lesson is taught.

Please RSVP as it lets me know how many copies of the lesson to bring.

Lesson plans can be found here.

For homework assignments we practice writing Hiragana.

You can find us on the bench tables in front of the food stands. I am the guy with the CPK cup full of pens/pencils. You can reach me by calling/texting[masked]-6737.

    I really had a great time with the class this time. We had an equal number of Japanese and Local people so it made the class even better!

      Good eye Amy. Actually, the producer/director George Lucas has a large affinity and love of the Japanese culture. One of his favorite directors is Akira Kurosawa. You will also notice Japanese influence all over the Star Wars movies. Look at the Queen of Naboo (Padme Amidala) and how she dresses. Her clothes are very much like kimonos. Also, her make-up is similar to geishas. Lastly, also look at the fighting style of the people who use light sabers. This is the same as kendo.
