Maryville College and the East Tennessee Japanese School again are partnering to offer a basic Japanese language course for the community. The classes, which begin at 9 a.m., Feb. 16 and continue every Saturday morning through April 27 (no class on March 16), are open to people aged 10 and up.

The two and one-half hour classes, taught by Maryville College students enrolled in Dr. Asami Segi’s Education 343: Practicum in Methods and Materials class, are held in Fayerweather Hall. Following the language instruction, native Japanese speakers offer 40-minute lessons on Japanese culture and traditions.

Tuition is $200 for the semester and is due by the first class session.

Detailed information about the curriculum is available at the school’s office.
