Program Description

There are so many reasons to study Japanese. First - it's not as hard as you think! It's true that Japanese has a much different system of writing than English or other European languages. However, did you know that new speakers can get by simply by learning 5 vowels, 39 consonant and vowel combinations, and 2 additions? These total the Japanese language's 46 'hiragana' or 'katakana' characters representing Japanese sounds. And in terms of grammar, Japanese nouns have no genders, plural forms, or articles to learn. Perhaps most importantly, knowing Japanese will set you apart - personally and professionally. From anime to sushi, Japanese cultural exports are exploding in popularity. Knowledge of the Japanese language can give you a deeper understanding and appreciation of Japanese culture. What's more, knowing Japanese can bring enhanced business opportunities. Being able to communicate with potential customers in their own language is a key to business, particularly in today's globalized economy.
