Exploring Japanese Independent Study

It's official, our Japanese language school is changing classes to Thursday nights next year. Several of my classmates are in the same boat as me: Thursdays just don't work. We could check out the continuing ed Japanese classes at MRU or the University of Calgary, but the timing may not work for all of us as a group.

To that end, we have been talking about getting together on a regular basis next year to keep up with our studies. One thing we'll have to really practice is conversing in Japanese.

We also discussed the need to get supplemental Japanese study materials.

This is another area that is worth exploring - online independent courses. Here are some courses that I've found:

Japanese 199 - Independent Study at UC Berkley

JAPAN 041: First-Year Japanese, Part 1 at BYU

DeWitt HS Japanese Independent Study
