Course Description

This course is designed for complete beginners or students with little knowledge of the language. 


Some of the topics covered during the 20-week course are:

  • Small talk about yourself and others
  • Numbers, time and dates
  • Telephoning
  • Shopping
  • Ordering food
  • Giving locations
  • Talking about your activities
  • Describing people and things.

In order to make learning easy, the English alphabet, 'Roma-ji' is mainly used in class during the first weeks of the course. The class then gradually shifts from Roma-ji to Hiragana and Katakana, which are everyday scripts in Japan. Teaching is communicative with regular opportunities for pair and group-work. Class work emphasises listening, speaking and the practice of sentence structure; self-study consists of reviewing work done in class and practising language skills as advised by the tutor.

NB: The practice of writing and reading Japanese letters is not dealt with in class; it relies on self-study with the tutor’s support.
