About This Class

Want to learn Japanese? Join Miko, a Tokyo resident, and learn the very basics to the Japanese language. 

This is my very first class, which I made in 2016. It is the very first Japanese class ever on Skillshare. I encourage you to learn the katakana writing system first, before hiragana or kanji. I will explain why in the video.

In this class, you will learn Katakana. Katakana is the angular writing system used to simulate foreign words, onomatopoeia, and give emotional emphasis in manga. 

Miko, a Japanese-American, graduated with a major in Japanese, and has been living in Japan since 2009.
