Event Details

This 4-part introductory Japanese course is designed to introduce the Japanese language to learners with little to no experience. Over four dynamic 1-hour sessions, you will be introduced to fundamental greetings, survival phrases, and practical vocabulary, catering to adult learners of all ages. Through engaging, interactive activities you'll learn to confidently navigate everyday situations, from ordering food to mastering basic grammar concepts. Join us on this fulfilling journey of language learning and cultural exploration.

Instructor Kon’nichiwa! Mikyla Bowen has studied Japanese for over 10 years and is very excited to introduce this wonderful culture to you. After sparking her interest with Japanese culture in high school, she received her undergraduate BA in both Psychology and Japanese at the University of Memphis. Having participated in a government-sponsored initiative to strengthen ties between the US and Japan, she experienced firsthand the power of cultural exchange in both business and education. Currently, she serves as the Japanese teacher at White Station Middle School. Additionally, she leads the Japanese Culture Club at Benjamin L. Hooks Library, fostering community engagement.
