Study Japanese Language in Person

by Alyssa Derania on April 3, 2024

We have closed registration as class has filled before the deadline. We hope you can join us next time in September for fall term.

Join us as we open up our textbooks and practice Japanese together in Salem, led by Hiromi Lathrop. Hiromi is a qualified Japanese language instructor with over 10 years teaching experience, mainly in Los Angeles, and prior business experience in Japan. Hiromi is looking forward to helping you understand and express yourself in Japanese!

Class 1 is for absolute beginners (or those with a little self-study only). You have not had the opportunity to speak out loud or practice any study with others or a teacher. You don’t recognize the hiragana or katakana alphabets.

We will start from Chapter 1 of the Genki 1 – 3rd edition textbook and workbook. Wednesdays 5:45-7pm.

Class 2 is for improving beginners – you have probably done some study in a group setting before, or perhaps significant self-study, but aren’t comfortable freely expressing a range of basic structures in an unsupported environment. Note this class is not for ABSOLUTE beginners. You should be able to recognize hiragana and many katakana characters  (albeit not perfectly) BEFORE class starts.

We will cover parts of Chapters 5, 6 & 7 of Genki 1 textbook. Wednesdays 7:15-8:30pm.

Note: additional costs – JASO Membership (from $33/yr), Genki 1 3rd edition textbook and workbook (around $65)
