Whether you're an Ohio State University student earning a major or minor in Japanese, a Northland High School student getting a head start on the language, or studying at any other area school, a Columbus Japanese course can be an excellent way to build your Japanese skills. Luckily, Varsity Tutors can help you get enrolled in a convenient online course with flexible scheduling options. If you're a working professional looking to pick up a new skill, we can accommodate your schedule and help you work towards your goals by providing you with the guidance of an expert Japanese instructor. One of the most crucial elements of learning any language can be getting enough consistent practice, and traditional classrooms may not always provide the resources that students need to reach their goals. In a Columbus Japanese course, you'll have the opportunity to engage with a Japanese language environment where you can develop your skills.

How and what will I study in a Columbus Japanese class?

Japanese is mostly spoken in Japan itself and hasn't been used as an official primary or secondary language by any other country since the middle of the 20th century. Despite this, Japanese is considered a major world language and has more than 127 million speakers worldwide. Not a lot is known about the origins of the Japanese language, despite written records of Japanese dating back to the 8th century. Japanese was once considered to be unrelated to any other modern language, but many scholars now theorize that it is related to Korean.

Like any other language, Japanese has unique quirks that can prove challenging for new learners and can be difficult to master even for more advanced speakers. However, a Columbus Japanese class can help you get your head around it all. Elements of Japanese grammar can seem vague to many English speakers. For example, Japanese nouns aren't gendered, have no grammatical number, and don't use articles. For example, while in English you might say "a book" or "some books", in Japanese you would only say "book", and the quantity would have to be inferred from context. Japanese also only has two tenses: past and non-past. Present and future tense are rolled together, which can be difficult to differentiate until you gain some experience. A Japanese class can also help you study Japanese sentence structure, pronunciation, vocabulary, and even some history and cultural knowledge.

All of this will be presented to you online in a virtual classroom where you'll be able to see, hear, and speak with a qualified Japanese instructor and your classmates. You'll be given lessons by your instructor, participate in collaborative learning activities, and engage with your classmates in group discussions. Speaking and writing in Japanese with other students can be a great way to build vocabulary, hone your grammatical skills, and build confidence in your ability to use Japanese conversationally in your day-to-day life. You'll get feedback from your instructor, and you'll even be able to request one-on-one time with them to really dig into any material that you're struggling with. At more advanced levels, your instructor may even choose to teach the class entirely in Japanese so that you can experience a totally immersive learning environment. All elements of the class have been designed to present you with a variety of avenues to reach toward your Japanese goals, regardless of your learning style or level of proficiency.

The convenience of an online course extends to how a Columbus Japanese course is scheduled and delivered. There are a variety of class times available, so you can learn Japanese regardless of how busy or your schedule is. If you're a working professional with a packed personal life, we may even be able to find something that will fit into your lunch break. If you're a Briggs High School student looking for something that will accommodate your extracurricular activities, we can find you a course that meets later at night or on the weekend. The accessibility that an online environment provides is also useful. You won't have to add a commute to your life, and you can access your course from anywhere you have an internet connection. Since language learning depends so heavily on persistent use of your Japanese, a course can give your learning outcomes a boost by reducing the barriers between you and a Japanese-language learning environment.
