Japanese Classes: February 1999

Author:Author unknown, Issue: February 1999, Topic: Japanese language

The Tsukuba Information Center will sponsor a 20 session Japanese class from April 13 through September 28. The classes will consist of 3 levels with a limit of 25 students each and will be held on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 am at the Tsukuba Information Center.

There is no tuition charge, but the textbooks, which are different for each level, are the responsibility of the student to purchase beforehand. The classes focus on basic conversation skills necessary for daily living. In addition to study, there are also some fun events, such as a potluck party and a bus tour.

The three class levels are as follows: Introductory (for students learning Japanese for the first time); Beginner 1 (for students who can read hiragana and katakana and can manage basic conversation); and Beginner 2 (for students who can write hiragana and can handle daily conversation).

As class space is limited, you need to register early. Registration begins on Feb. 25. Application forms are available at the Information Center, where you will need to provide basic information. Applicants must live in or near Tsukuba, and be able to attend all of the classes. For more information, call Ms. Nishikawa or Ms. Nemoto at 52-6789.
