Japanese Class for super beginners

  • This location is shown only to members

This is the event for a person who want to learn Japanese from scratch. If you think "I want to travel to Japan some day, I want to enjoy more of manga, anime and J drama in Japanese." just come join us.

Japanese people, Please participate too !!
また、日本語学習のボランティアが出来る、 ご自身が英語を学習中、その他日米友達が欲しい等どんな理由でもかまいません。日本人の方の参加もお待ちしています。

instead of the alphabet, Japanese uses KANA. There are two kinds of KANA-
" HIRAGANA" and "KATAKANA".
HIRAGANA is used for the traditional sound of Japanese. KATAKANA is used for words that were borrowed from other languages.
Both kana sets are what you use when you first learn Japanese.
Knowing these are really important to learn and speak Japanese.
Japanese is a phonetic language. if you study KANA it's much easier to speak Japanese.
Now let's begin practicing.

Lesson あいうえお 
the lesson of today it is A I U E O.
learn how to pronounce, write KANA and check the words.

please bring $3 to cover the cost of printing sheets.

bring a English-Japanese dictionary, if you have one.

mobile app is also OK. writing implements required.

    Although the weather today is sadly dull, I will be at the Panera about 20 minutes earlier than the scheduled time to set everything up, so if any of you would like to come earlier than the set time, please feel welcome to do so!
    See you later today!

    To people on the waiting list:
    Thank you for participating in this activity!
    Since it's hard for me to teach a group of more than 16 at one time efficiently, I'm going to set up another class with the same curriculum sometime soon.
    If you would still like to participate in the class, please feel welcome to RSVP in that group!
    I will make sure everyone in the current waiting list will be able to participate in the next class!
    I am very sorry for the inconvenience. p.s. (if someone cancels, and a spot opens, the person next in line in the waiting group will be able to join in the group) Thank you!
