See event description for details on how to connect

Saturdays, 1pm to 3pm Saturday 25 July to Saturday 26 September


Course Fee (including textbook): $365

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

The 10 Week Taster Course is a practical online course, designed for absolute beginners, where you will develop basic speaking and listening skills in Japanese.

Additionally, you will discuss Japanese culture and share your experiences based on the class topics (greetings, food, towns and shopping) to deepen your knowledge of Japan.

On completion of 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.

This is also a suitable warm-up course for those considering learning Japanese in the long-term.

Note: Japanese scripts (hiragana and katakana) are introduced for the purpose of pronunciation but are not taught in this course. If you would like to learn how to read and write Japanese as well, we also offer a comprehensive year-long Mid-Year Starter Course.
