    Japanese 1: learning to say what you like and your name and hiragana
    Japanese 2: hiragana still and how old you are
    Japanese 3: katakana also still hiragana because 80% of the class didn't get it the first two years and where you are from
    Japanese 4: still katakana and how to count things
    Japanese AP: here are 500 kanji learn them by next class also please write a five page essay explaining the significance of the Dole Banana Man in modern Japanese culture also please translate the 16 page verb sheet and learn two more tenses this will be due tuesday

    i feel like it's a little uneven.

    So it starts out pretty repetitive then something that sounds incredibly hard. No build up or anything? Doesn't seem right to me.

    Did you get a new teacher in the course of a year?

    Bad teaching technique better if it had a sort of slow climb to the harder topics

    She also speaks like 100 words of english so no one knows what she's trying to teach us.

    I'm independent studying during a J.1 class and one girl pronounced katakana like "kuhtahkaynee" and she just goes, "That very cute. But that is not the way the Japanese would the speak."

    on the bright side she's really cute and lets us do whatever we want, really.

    that awkward moment when you've always wanted to learn Japanese and you see this thread. ;~;

    This is pretty much what I'm afraid of when it comes to the AP American History course I'm taking this year.
    I've heard stories from people who took it last year too.
    I'm dead.

    On a side note, I wonder how many people have ever took Japanese solely due to anime.

    Man, I wish they would have taught Japanese at my middle school and my high school, that probably would have been very awesome. I had to have a translator on my trip to Japan and it was a little embarrassing. •n•

    I'll try to remember this when I take japanese classes. Although, that's one heck of a difficulty curve. I down't think any video game can beat that
