Enrolling in a Seattle Japanese course through Varsity Tutors could make your Japanese study experience a lot easier with the help of online learning. Many students who want to study Japanese abandon the idea once they realize how difficult it can be to fit a traditional classroom course into their busy schedule. Even if they can find a weekend or evening class, it can still be challenging to carve out time to commute to and attend the sessions. An online Japanese course can solve this dilemma by providing a range of course times throughout the day that can accommodate your availability.

Though Japanese is just mainly spoken in Japan, there are still many people from different countries that are native speakers or studying it for various reasons. Some students from schools like Ballard High School and Garfield High School may learn Japanese in order to meet general education requirements. Other adult learners might study it out of personal interest, while college students at schools like the University of Washington may take on Japanese courses to be eligible for work in Japan. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, a Seattle Japanese class could make your study experience more convenient and efficient.

What material will a Seattle Japanese course cover?

The Japanese writing system is one topic that all learners of Japanese go through early on in their studies. Basically, there are three sets of characters being used in Japanese: hiragana, katakana, and kanji. You will need to practice writing all three characters and reading some basic sentences as well.

Japanese nouns, unlike many Indo-European languages, do not have gender, articles, or numbers. For example, if you need to express that there is more than one item, you will need to put a counting character together with the noun or ensure its number can be inferred through context. There are also nouns that are plural in nature like "hitobito", which means people.

Verbs and verb conjugation can also be covered in your Seattle Japanese class. You might find Japanese verb tenses easier than English since there are only two tenses: past and non-past. It's called non-past because the language uses the same conjugation for present and future tense.

Another difference between English and Japanese that most students notice is the word order. Word order in Japanese is described as SOV, or subject-object-verb, while English follows a subject-verb-object pattern. Here's an example:

English: You study Japanese.Japanese: You Japanese study.

As you progress through your studies, the different sentence structure will begin to sound more natural and become easier to comprehend.

How will a San Diego Japanese course help me learn?

Online learning has given many people the chance to study a wide range of subjects that they wouldn't have been able to in the past. Of course, this applies to languages. Varsity Tutors offers an online Japanese course at different times of the day, including mornings and evenings, and on both weekdays and weekends. This means there's more flexibility in terms of finding a course that fits your schedule.

Another benefit of studying Japanese online is that you don't need the extra time to commute to a physical classroom. You can conveniently study from the comfort of your home and have more time to do other activities before and after your class. The time you save from traveling could be the time you invest in doing some individual study in between lessons.

Worried about how you can ask questions if you don't understand a topic? The Seattle Japanese class is live, so your instructor and classmates will all be there in the virtual classroom. You can see, hear, and interact with them as if you were in a regular classroom. Learning with other students also means that you will have people to practice Japanese with, and you can have your teacher point out any errors instantly.

Of course, if you do need extra time to work on difficult topics in Japanese or if you would like to get more practice time with the supervision of your instructor, then you can request one-on-one time with them. This is another benefit that the course offers that may not be readily available in traditional classes. Our Japanese course makes sure you have access to this type of support so that you can address your core difficulties more effectively.
