Whether you want to speak Japanese for business or personal reasons, Fundamental Japanese 1 is as great way to learn!  In this class, Mayumi Kiefer will be using the Genki Textbooks, a highly acclaimed series of integrated resources for learning elementary Japanese, to guide you through a well-balanced approach to learning the language that also incorporates many words and expressions that are closely tied to students’ everyday lives to provide a full lineup communicative practice. Genki is designed to make it easier for instructors to prepare student-centered lessons that are as fun as they are effective.  This course focuses on the functional applications of the Dialogue and Grammar section of the textbook, although portions of the Reading and Writing sections will be assigned as self-study and reviewed during each of the live lessons.  All lessons approach the Japanese language holistically by introducing cultural aspects and contexts for each of the lessons.  Since this course focuses on the spoken portion of language learning, students will be expected to participate actively and pre-read each of the lessons before coming to class. You will need to purchase the textbook Genki 1, by Japanese Times Publishing prior to class.  This class is available both as an in person class with Mayumi or by watching the class and participating over Zoom.
