What can I learn from an Austin Japanese class?
Japanese is one of the world's major languages, and written records of the language date all the way back to 700 A.D. That's over a thousand years of history and culture! With such a rich canon, you have much to learn from an Austin Japanese course. Knowing Japanese opens you up to countless works of literature, history, and art. Your instructor may choose to have students engage with Japanese culture or literature. For example, you may read Japanese novels such as "The Wind Up Bird Chronicle," or discuss the work of Japanese artists like Yayoi Kusama.
Japanese instructors can cover a variety of concepts in a course, beginning with the basics of vocabulary, phrasing, and pronunciation. Students may learn about the Japanese noun system, as well. In Japanese, nouns do not have a number (singular or plural) assigned to them. For example, the noun "hon" could mean "book" or "books." Other nouns are effectively plural, such as the word "hitobito" which means "people." While this may seem confusing, an Austin Japanese course can clarify these concepts and others. All courses taught by expert Japanese instructors who pass through a strict vetting process, and all of the instructors are enthusiastic about teaching students Japanese.
How can I learn Japanese in an online course?
All classes are taught entirely online by knowledgeable and helpful instructors. The Live Learning Platform utilizes several technology tools that make learning accessible for students, even if you are more accustomed to a traditional classroom. Instructors teach sessions using video chat, so you can always see your instructor and ask questions in real time. You can use the virtual whiteboard feature to take notes, just like in a real classroom. Then, converse about questions, assignments, and concepts with other students on the discussion board. If you are less advanced in a certain Japanese topic, you will benefit from seeing discussion posts from other students; if you are more advanced, you can benefit from leading discussions and sharing your knowledge with your peers.
Extra support is also available for students who pursue it. You have the option to request a one-on-one meeting with your instructor. Pick a time that fits your schedule, then video chat with your instructor. You can ask questions or check in on your progress in the class. Instructors are always willing to work with students to ensure you meet your learning goals and keep pace with other students in the class. Whether you benefit more from instructor-led or collaborative instruction, an Austin Japanese class caters to all learning styles and skill levels.

Hi! I'm Rachel. I have a pretty relaxed teaching style and adapt well to all kinds of students. I really aim for students to understand concepts rather than make great test scores. However, great test scores are a good side effect of understanding concepts better.
