This course introduces students with no previous Japanese language experience to basic conversation, grammar, and the hiragana writing system. Through our study of these three subjects, we will also explore cultural issues such as polite language and Japan’s integration of foreign words and ideas. Basic conversation and cultural topics include greetings, self-introductions, food and drink, shopping, popular culture, manga and anime, and other topics of interest to students.

Amy C. Franks earned her PhD in Japanese Language and Literature from Yale University, and her BA in Japanese Studies and English from Wellesley College.
