If you've completed our series of courses covering Japanese for Busy People, Book I, this course will enable you to continue your studies with the next book. You'll acquire sentence patterns and vocabulary related to the themes introduced in the textbook while gradually building daily conversation skills. The class will give ample time for review of basic vocabulary and structure of daily conversation to help you build towards intermediate-level language skills using your previously acquired knowledge. You'll read the text written in Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji, with new Kanji introduced in every topic. Though the emphasis of this course is learning daily conversational patterns, due to the nature of the Japanese language, you'll also spend some time reading and writing Kanji.
