    i just now decided to sign up for classes for fall semester, being so late i really have a limited selection of classes. :greddy: i was trying to avoid this class, but all the tyipcal literature classes are full or don't fit in my schedule.
    hooray for being in a class full of people similar to me... which i oddly do not like in real life, because... i don't like myself.

    anyways it shouldn't be that bad. i am going to have the same teacher i had last semester, he was a total bad ass and must of been in his 30s. by bad ass i meant dork who made the class into an interesting experience. the positives are that it is a "survey course, and requires little depth", and that we will watch asian movies and anime.

    well no actually it is just literature not a language class... so i assume it is already translated.

    I took Japanese 1 for my foreign language credit last year in college. The teacher was meh and we spent most of the semester attempting to learn hiragana and katakana before fnishing up with about 20 different kanji, including the kanji for #1-10.

    Pretty boring except for the day when we watched 'Kill Bill' to see how to pronunciate properly.

    And an asian lit class will probably focus on how these countries' languages are so different from one another even though they're so close to each other. A good example is Chinese vs. Japanese; they're only seperated by like 80 miles of sea and there's such a different written and spoken language its quite interesting for those who study multiple languages.

    I doubt you'll keep entertained long enough to learn japanese then. I was in a class and I was bored out of my mind after the first two weeks, we just kept going over the same things.

    I still have my Japanese textbooks though so I could learn on my own if I want to. And I do think these books are pretty damn good in terms of teaching someone w/ no knowledge of Japanese the basics.

    well, although there is only 80 miles between this two country, there does have large differences~~~ the languages / the culture/ the people as well.

    chinese is the hardest one,but chinese is the most valuable one to learn, it has long history more than 5000 year... ... some of the japanese characters are silimar with chinese just the pronunciation is much different~~~

    well, if me, chinese is my first chioce---china have more inteseting places to travelling using language.

    I guess, considering we started the class with the vowels in hiragana in August and ended the class with the beginnings of Kanji in December. If you want I could look online for what my textbooks were and link here to them; I think they only cost me like $40 USD combined.
