The Japanime Club meets every Thursday from 3:30 until 4:30 PM in F120.
During the sessions we will be reviewing the following topics: vocabulary and grammar, culture, presenting projects, etc.
Focus: Students will utilize Japanese vocabulary. Students will explore the difference in ways of reading and writing skills/graphics. An understanding of the Japanese arts will be displayed through a drawing, poems, short stories, anime, and manga. Creative ways to convey knowledge of both the Japanese culture and the language will be utilized through club presentations. A PowerPoint will be shared by each student about the language and/ or culture.
Student Participation: In order to learn about the Japanese language and culture, there must be outside learning and communication. Students will be expected to volunteer in community events at least twice per year in order to utilize skills in an authentic manner. Student presentations will be an important part of the activities at the club.
Japanese Club Goals: 1.) To ensure that every student who wants to learn Japanese has the opportunity to provide and obtain information. 2.) To allow students to utilize Japanese language skills to acquire in-depth knowledge of Japanese culture, art, and society.
