Maryville College and the East Tennessee Japanese School again are partnering to offer a basic Japanese language course for the community Sept. 21 through Nov. 23. The classes, which are open to people ages 10 and up, are held every Saturday from 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

The classes, taught by Maryville College students enrolled in Dr. Asami Segi’s Education 343: Practicum in Methods and Materials class, are held in Thaw 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, along with an application form.
