JPF Sydney: Japanese 10 Week Taster Course

  • Sun 12th Jul 2020
  • Level 4, Central Park, 28 Broadway, Chippendale NSW 2008

Would you like to communicate with Japanese people by saying more than just “arigatoo” (“thank you”)?

This is a practical course, designed for absolute beginners, where you will develop basic speaking and listening skills in Japanese. Additionally, you will discuss about Japanese culture and share your experiences based on the class topics (Greetings, Food, Towns and Shopping) to deepen your knowledge of Japan.

Once you have completed this course, you will be able to:

Exchange basic greetings

Give a simple self-introduction

Order food and drinks

Ask for directions while looking at a map

Ask questions while shopping etc.

Note: Japanese scripts (hiragana and katakana) are introduced for the purpose of pronunciation but are not taught in this course. This is also a suitable introductory course for those considering learning Japanese in the long-term.
