You will attend courses alongside a number of classmates who are studying Japanese at approximately the same level as you are. Whether you're seeking instruction to supplement or enhance your language class at a school like Walnut Hills or Oak Hills High School, at the University of Cincinnati, another area academic institution, or you're learning on your own for personal reasons, Varsity Tutors can help.

New courses begin every month, including a variety of sections that start at different times of the day. By offering our Live Learning Platform online and giving you a choice of times, Varsity Tutors has made Japanese classes as convenient as possible.

What content is covered in a Cincinnati Japanese course?

Japanese is spoken by more than 127 million people and is one of the most common world languages. Many United States students or professionals learn Japanese to enhance their academic, professional, social, or personal opportunities. It's an interesting language that sometimes seems to stand on its own, unrelated to any other language. There's now a theory that it's related to the Japonic language family, but not much is known for certain.

This doesn't stop your class from providing comprehensive coverage of the language itself. If you're just beginning to learn the language, your Cincinnati Japanese class may begin by learning a few essential phrases of greeting and the most important questions, such as where to locate certain public facilities or businesses. You could be holding short Japanese conversations on your first day. Classes can continue with a focus on pronunciation, building up your vocabulary, and learning common phrases and idioms.

There are some significant differences between Japanese and English, one of which is sentence structure. Where English speakers use the subject-verb-object structure (I eat food), Japanese uses a subject-object-verb structure (I food eat). Your instructor can help you navigate this unfamiliar way of speaking, and might introduce ideas to help. One such idea could be to learn Japanese not by translating it in your head to English, but into the images and ideas the words represent. If you can do that, you can learn the language more effectively and efficiently.

Another difference in Japanese is that nouns are not used to indicate number. If there are multiples in a sentence, English speakers often add "s" or "es" to the end of the noun. Japanese indicates multiples through context or counting words instead of the noun. There are no articles in Japanese, and the nouns have no gender aspect. Verbs are conjugated with tenses like in English, but there are only two tenses: past and non-past (which includes both present and future). Finally, you may study Japanese history and culture to gain a deeper understanding of the language and the people who speak it as their native tongue.

Why is taking a Cincinnati Japanese class better than studying Japanese on my own?

Language has one purpose: to allow people to communicate with each other. It only makes sense to study a language with other people. Of course, you may do some memorization practice or grammar drills on your own, but the best way to learn a language is to use it in real conversation with others speaking the same language at or above your fluency level. This is one of the greatest reasons to learn Japanese through a Cincinnati Japanese course.

Studies have shown that the collaborative environment engendered in programs like a live, online Cincinnati Japanese class helps with retention of information and a deeper understanding of the material learned. With the ability to connect with your instructor and your peers during class time, you can give and receive help with memorization techniques, perfecting your pronunciation, and other specifics of the language. If you feel like you're falling behind, you can request one-on-one time with your instructor to focus on the material you need to master to catch up with the class quickly. With these types of options, why would you want to study on your own?
