This is a teacher support course to learn how to read and write katakana. 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 katakana characters and words, read sentences in hiragana and katakana, and learn to type katakana characters on a computer keyboard using the interactive teaching materials.
The course includes Classroom Lessons at the Japan Foundation Manila (JFM) on three Saturday mornings to provide students a setting to verify what they have learned online. Reading practice in class will focus on katakana words and hiragana / katakana 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.
