This course is designed for students who do not have any background in Japanese.

The hiragana and katakana symbols (Japanese phonetic writing systems) will be learned along with approximately 25 Kanji characters (Japanese-Chinese characters). At the end of the course, students should be able to engage in a variety of practical speaking, listening, reading, and writing activities.
