Did You Know?

Hiragana was developed from the cursive style of kanji in the beginning of the Heian era (794 – 1192). Katakana was developed in the Nara period (710 – 794) by either simplifying the kanji imported from China or by squaring off its cursive style.
Workshop
Thursday, May 17, 6–8 PM (Hiragana)
Friday, May 18, 6–8 PM (Katakana)

These mini-workshops offer the beginning student of Japanese the opportunity to quickly and efficiently master the reading of the two Japanese syllabaries, hiragana and katakana. It is these two writing systems, in combination with the more complex kanji (ideograms which represent meaning), which constitute the written Japanese language.

Instructor: Ms. Mami Nakanishi has a BA in Literature from Sophia University in Tokyo. She is a graduate of Japan Society’s Teacher Training Program and has been on Japan Society’s teaching staff since the summer of 2010.
