This is a teacher support course to learn how to read and write hiragana.
Besides learning how to type characters on a computer keyboard, materials on how to write are also available for those who want to learn handwriting.
In this course, students first learn to read single hiragana characters, then words and phrases, and learn to type hiragana characters on a computer keyboard using the interactive teaching materials.
Classes at the Japan Foundation Manila (JFM) once every two weeks on Saturday mornings will provide students a setting to verify what they have learned. Reading practice in class will focus on hiragana words and sentences from Lessons 1 to 10 of the MARUGOTO Japanese Language & Culture Starter A1 coursebook.
Two types of teacher support will be offered in this course:
1. Three (3) Classroom Lessons
2. A Reading Test during the third classroom lesson
This course has a Group noticeboard. You can study by communicating with your classmates and teacher through the noticeboard.
