Japanese is spoken by about 125 million people, primarily in Japan but also in large Japanese migrant communities such as in the US and Brazil. Japan is a popular tourist destination and a very important country in global trade and commerce. This course will be of great interest to students of the Japanese language, people travelling to Japan for business or on vacation, or even someone who is simply interested in Japanese culture.
The course begins by introducing you to the basics of the Japanese language, such as Kanji and Hiragana scripts, pronunciation of Japanese words and how to count in Japanese. You will also learn basic Japanese conversational phrases and expressions, verb conjugations, and how to ask questions such as “dochira kara desu ka”, or “where are you from?” As you complete each section, you will have the opportunity to gauge your understanding via assessments. There are four assessments throughout the course, followed by a final assessment. In addition, course resources include pronunciation charts and vocabulary references to assist in your revision and study.
