Conversational Japanese Classes for Middle & High School Students
Thursday, Aug 2, 2012, 1:00pm-2:00pm
South Norwalk Branch Library 10 Washington Street Norwalk, CT
Joy DeJaeger, returns to the South Norwalk Branch Library this summer to offer weekly, conversational or "survival" Japanese language classes for middle and high school students. Students who will enter middle school this fall and plan to take Japanese are also welcome. DeJaeger, a native Japanese speaker who studied Japanese language for over 10 years, is the former president of Project Kokoro, a Los Angeles-based program that promotes Japanese language and culture. Classes will include language games, vocabulary expansion and crafts, with the goal of preparing students to not only speak the language at a basic level, but to practice the polite mannerisms and gestures that are unique to the Japanese culture as well. Sessions are limited to 20 students. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Please call 203 899-2790 x2 to register or for more information.
