Japanese 101: Hiragana (Ages 11+)

Japanese 101: Hiragana (Ages 11+) – Wednesday, August 7 & 28 (4-5:15 pm) 

Do you enjoy anime, manga, or Japanese video games? Have you always wanted to learn Japanese, but feel overwhelmed or don’t know where to start? Join Gary and Meagan for Japanese 101, an ongoing bimonthly summer series that teaches the absolute basics of Japanese language learning. We will be learning how to read the three character sets (hiragana in June, katakana in July, and kanji in August). Along the way, Meagan will share fun facts about the Japanese language, while Gary shares about Japanese culture from his extensive background of 10 years living in Japan. There will also be short exercises, take-home practice sheets to improve your mastery of reading the characters, and yummy Asian snacks!

This program is appropriate for adults, teens, and tweens.
