(あいさつ) Greetings and "Genki" Chapter 1
あたらし ともだち を できます！
We will be introducing the 46 "basic" hiragana, learning the basics of Japanese grammar, and have plenty of time to practice speaking to each other. This self-study group will be following the 2nd edition of the "Genki" series of textbooks as well as using the work book for more practice. The textbook moves very quickly into hiragana only, so the more you are comfortable with the kana the easier the class will be.
Anyone who either wants an introduction to the Japanese language, or who would just like an opportunity to practice what they already know with other language learners are welcome to attend. There are no costs for attending other than getting a copy of the text.
