Japanese Culture HS
An exciting cross curricular exploration in the language and culture of Japan! Students will learn the basics of Japanese language and culture by exploring things as widely known as origami or as unknown and exciting as puppet theatre. Activities, songs, and film clips will be accompanied by basic grammar patterns and vocabulary to create a fun environment for learning Japanese. Languages like Japanese can seem daunting but in fact are rewarding languages that can be grasped with practice. The class will be conducted as an introduction to Japanese and thus not as intensive as a normal language course so students can "get their feet wet" so to speak, with a language such as Japanese.
* Prerequisites: None
* This course includes an optional learning experience.
