Varsity Tutors can help you enroll in a San Francisco-Bay Area Japanese course that can give you the support you need when trying to learn Japanese. The course gives you access to well-trained instructors who have many years of experience teaching Japanese at different levels. You can also attend the course entirely online, which is a convenient way to study if you don't want to take on a long commute just to attend a class.

Japanese is spoken by more than 124 million people, and it's a popular foreign language among learners mainly because of the influence of Japanese pop culture. Students from high schools such as Lowell High School and Abraham Lincoln High may take Japanese courses to comply with general education requirements, while college students from the University of San Francisco may learn Japanese as a second language, and working professionals may study it as an added skill they can use when applying for work at Japanese companies or for traveling to Japan.

Whatever your language goals may be, learning Japanese by enrolling in a San Francisco-Bay Area Japanese class with Varsity Tutors can be a fun and worthwhile experience. You can consume a lot of interesting media in Japanese and even have a deeper understanding of the Japanese culture.

What material will a San Francisco-Bay Area Japanese course cover?

When it comes to Japanese, one of the first topics that is taught to learners is sentence structure. Japanese follows a subject-object-verb sentence pattern, unlike in English where the order is subject-verb-object. For example:

English = I eat pizza
Japanese = I pizza eat

The Japanese writing system is also taught at the beginner level. There are three character systems that are used in Japanese: hiragana, katakana, and kanji or Chinese characters. Most students have an easy time learning the first two, but when it comes to kanji, many students find it challenging. This is because aside from learning how to write a single character, you also have to memorize several ways of reading it.

Other topics that will be covered in a San Francisco-Bay Area Japanese class revolve around nouns, verb conjugation, common expressions, vocabulary, and pronunciation. Since you are learning a language, it is inevitable that you will engage in discussions about culture, society, and history while in your Japanese class.

How will a San Francisco-Bay Area Japanese course help me learn?

Learning Japanese is no easy feat. That's why you need the support of expert language instructors. In a Japanese course, you can study the language under the tutelage of experienced Japanese teachers who can explain grammar and other nuances of the language. Instructors who lead these courses have gone through a rigorous interviewing and vetting process that ensures only those who are truly qualified get selected.

These Japanese courses are offered online to make it even more convenient for students to start learning. In a virtual classroom, you can participate in live classes where you can hear, see, and interact with your instructor and classmates as if you were in a physical classroom. Since there are also other students, you can have many opportunities to practice the Japanese you have learned in class through conversation practice or group exercises. Collaborative lessons have been shown to improve a student's understanding of a topic and can encourage creative thinking.

Of course, if you encounter topics that might be difficult to understand and you feel you need one-on-one attention from your Japanese instructor, our San Francisco-Bay Area Japanese class will allow you to request this type of private support. You can ask questions and promptly get relevant answers that can help you make sense of what you don't understand much faster than studying on our own. The class ensures you can have access to the support you need in order to succeed in your pursuit of Japanese proficiency.
