This course will cover the basics of written and spoken communication in Japanese. You will learn both of the writing systems used to phonetically write Japanese, as well as the vastly more complex Kanji writing system. My goal is to get you reading, writing (and typing), and to whatever extent is possible in an exclusively online course, speaking in Japanese.
Class will be conducted via the online learning management system Schoology. It's free to use, and provides a straightforward, powerful means to organize classes, share content, and collaborate.
Link for Schoology (class site) and sign up code are contained in the syllabus.
