|Course Title||Essential Grammar and Conversation A&B|
|Level||Upper Beginner (N4)|
|Course description||You’ll be able to convey your wishes, ask for permission while giving a reason, study assumptive expressions and express your feelings or things that happened more accurately.|
|Class structure||This class focuses on a few target expressions each time. We have selected N4 level expressions that are the basis of Japanese grammar.|
At the beginning of the class, your instructor will explain the meaning and usage of the expression with some examples. There are example sentences and sample conversations, so you can feel how they are used in an everyday conversation.
Also, you will read aloud the sentences to check the pronunciation and will make your own sentences and practice conversation with your classmates.
This course can be a great basement for your further Japanese studying.
The whole course consists of two parts – Essentila Grammar and Conversation A and B. It is recommended that those who have completed Course A proceed to Course B, because Course B has classes that require the knowledge covered in Course A.
