This course uses haiku by well-known Japanese poets as a springboard for learning Japanese.
The course can be used as a supplement to traditional textbook-style courses. Learners of all levels will find something of value in the course though it would be most beneficial to upper beginner-intermediate learners. Two of the lessons are geared toward beginners and the rest are intermediate. Hiragana and Romaji are used throughout the slides. Kanji are accompanied by furigana.
Kanji learning includes a discussion of radicals in characters as well as stroke order. Vocabulary is expanded by introducing the Kanji in commonly used words.
