If you've been having a hard time finding a quality Ann Arbor Japanese course, you're in luck. At Varsity Tutors, we pride ourselves in being able to set you up with top-notch Japanese courses. Japanese is considered one of the world's major languages. That said, Japan is the only country to use Japanese as a first or second language since the mid-20th century. Written records of this language date all the way back to the 8th century. Japanese is thought to be related to Korean, but not much is known about its prehistory or when it first started being used in Japan. Despite its unknown origins, it is spoken by over 127 million people and is mainly used in the Japanese archipelago.

There are many reasons one might need to learn Japanese. Perhaps you're a student at a secondary institute such as Pioneer High School or Huron High School. If you're taking Japanese as your language course, you'll want to make sure to keep up with your coursework so you can build a solid foundation in the language. A supplemental Ann Arbor Japanese class can help you with this. Older students can benefit from extra Japanese classes as well. Students taking high-level courses at a university or college such as the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor may find themselves having a hard time with the complexities of advanced Japanese. An online class can help you gain extra practice with any skills you're struggling to understand.

Perhaps you're an established professional and you're looking for a way to move up the corporate ladder. Learning to speak Japanese can be a very valuable skill to potential employers. Maybe you're just wanting to travel to Japan and desire to have a basic understanding of conversational phrases. No matter what your particular motivation is, we're here to set you up with top-notch Japanese course opportunities.

What skills or material can I learn from an Ann Arbor Japanese course?

Japanese is a beautiful language that can be difficult to learn. There are many ways it is different than English, which can cause some trouble for students when they're trying to grasp the unfamiliar material.

For example, Japanese sentence structure varies from English in a few important ways. In English, the order of a sentence typically goes "subject-verb-object" or "I Love puppies." In Japanese, the only strict rule is the requirement to put the verb at the end of the sentence. In our above example, you could write "I puppy love" in Japanese and it would still be correct.

Another example of a way Japanese differs from English and other Indo-European languages is in the fact that Japanese nouns have no gender, number, or article aspect. Nouns can refer to either singular or plural items. The only way to indicate the number of an object is by adding a quantifying word.

Japanese is also unique is that it only has two tenses: past and non-past. Non-past verbs can either indicate present or future events. Verbs are conjugated to indicate which tense they are showing.

These are all concepts that you might struggle to understand if Japanese isn't your first language. A Japanese class can help you learn and review these concepts.
