We have three Conversation Classes. If you would like to go to Japan in the near future and have limited time to study, these classes are ideal. No reading or writing is required, and there is no textbook — we use Powerpoint lessons to study. Just join the class. Enjoy Japanese while you are in Boston!
Textbook: "Japanese for Busy People" Book 1, (Kana or Romanized) and GENKI-I. Our goal is to complete this best-selling textbook. You will speak basic Japanese and be able to read the Japanese syllabaries.
Learning materials in this class are CDs, Newspapers, DVDs, fiction books, magazines, and TV programs. Text will be pulled from applicable materials based on student needs. Our goal is to verbalize abstract expressions and ideas. Equivalent in Proficiency Test N-3.
After GENKI 1 and 2, please join this class before heading to Advanced Class. Textbook is TOBIRA.
