If you are a student at Alexander Hamilton Senior High School or at John Marshall Senior High School looking for a way to start learning Japanese, Varsity Tutors offers a Los Angeles Japanese course to get you started quickly in your studies. Learning Japanese on your own can be difficult since it doesn't have a lot of similarities with English, and studying it in a traditional classroom setup may not be the most convenient option for busy adult learners or college students from the University of Southern California who have a hectic daily schedule. With a Japanese course, you can study online and have experienced instructors guiding you in your classes.

Japanese is primarily spoken in the Japanese archipelago. Since the mid-20th century, no nation other than Japan has used Japanese as a first or a second language. Still, it is an in-demand foreign language due to the worldwide popularity of Japanese pop culture found in anime, manga, and movies. It is also a good language skill to have if you are planning to enter a Japanese company or work and travel in Japan.

Whether you are a student who wants to study Japanese for a school requirement or an adult learner who would like to add Japanese to your other languages, a Los Angeles Japanese class can be a good way to start learning. There are different courses for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students and no matter which level you are in, you will get high-quality lessons from the course instructors.

What material will a Los Angeles Japanese course cover?

Japanese sentence structure is a topic covered in a beginner-level Japanese course. Word order in Japanese is patterned as subject-object-verb. This pattern is different from what many English speakers are used to since English follows the subject-verb-object word order.

Besides sentence structure, your Los Angeles Japanese class will also introduce hiragana and katakana, which are two writing systems used in Japanese. You will also start learning some simple kanji characters, which are characters derived from Chinese. As you progress in your studies, you will learn more complex kanji combinations, different readings for each kanji and kanji pair, and special readings for certain characters. Learning the Japanese writing system can be very challenging, but with regular practice and with the help of your instructor, you will get used to the different characters and soon realize that you can write and read simple sentences.

When it comes to grammar, you may find that Japanese is quite simple compared to English, especially when it comes to verb tense. Unlike English, Japanese only has two tenses: past and non-past. It is called non-past since Japanese uses the same tense for the present and future.

Other topics you may cover in your course include pronunciation, fixed expressions and greetings, formal and informal language, and essential vocabulary.

How can a Los Angeles Japanese course help me learn?

When studying a new language, it can be easier if you start with formal lessons. This way, you can have a good foundation of basic grammar and sentence structure. Japanese courses are taught by experienced Japanese language instructors who can teach you different aspects of the language such as grammar, kana and kanji writing, and reading. If you have questions, you can get immediate answers from your instructors, which makes learning even more fun and convenient. If you do get stuck with a topic and feel that you need extra help, you can reserve one-on-one time with your Japanese instructor. It's important to make sure that you have access to this type of support so that you can effectively address your core difficulties and learn Japanese efficiently.

Los Angeles Japanese classes are also conducted online, so you can participate in the class from the comfort of your home. Many students who want to study a language can end up losing interest once it becomes difficult to attend classes. However, since these Japanese classes are online, you don't need to set aside extra hours just for traveling. The time you can save form the commute can be extra time you can invest in your studies.
