This Fall, based on your feedback and to reflect the growing curriculum, we are switching to a new naming scheme for our classes. Please see the individual course pages for descriptions of course content and experience expectations.


Japanese 1 and Advanced Japanese Conversation operate on a single-session schedule. This means that they start anew each session (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall).


Japanese 2 is on a four-session schedule, beginning two times a year (Spring and Fall). If you are looking to enter into these levels for the first time, please register for the Part 1 class. If you have previously taken these levels in the Spring and Summer sessions, please register for the Part 3 class. 


Japanese 3 is on a continuing curriculum, continuing through the textbook each semester yet open to new students. Visit the class page for details.


Registration deadline: Wednesday, September 27
Registration is on a first come first served basis. Space is limited (classes are full at 12 participants).
