Personal Enrichment

Japanese I, Beginning

$79

with Eva Morris, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

Calendar Sep 16, 2019 at 5:30 am, runs for 3 weeks
From the start, students will learn to read and write Hiragana, the Japanese alphabet. With this understanding of pronunciation students will be able to transcribe any word, or phrase that they hear. Concurrently, basic conversation, then basic grammar is presented, in such a way that students will be able to converse, write and read Hiragana. 10 Kanji will also be taught, a great base to appreciate the beauty of the language, and begin gaining vocabulary.

Japanese II, Spoken and Written

$79

with Eva Morris, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

Calendar Sep 16, 2019 at 7:30 am, runs for 3 weeks
Students learn Katakana, the Japanese alphabet used to write foreign words, easy to do after learning Hiragana in Beginning Japanese I. The next step is to practice short textbook conversations, while learning more basic Kanji appearing in common words. Calligraphy and penmanship will be focused on. To boost retention the class will watch parts of Japanese movies and television and be able to understand key sentences. At this point, students are speaking, writing, and reading Hiragana, Katakana, and 20 Kanji!

Japanese Knotweed Flutes

$35

with Zack Rouda, Merrymeeting Adult Education

Calendar Aug 27, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Japanese knotweed is a frustrating invasive; it overruns and denudes our landscape and should generally be eradicated. It grows quickly and is difficult to remove. Finding as many uses for Japanese knotweed makes sense, as it is now abundant and largely unavoidable. Its young shoots are edible, and its roots may be used to fight Lyme disease. Its stalks resemble bamboo but are unfortunately not as strong and are useless for building, but they can be fashioned into functional musical instrument! Learn to use Japanese knotweed stalks to make a working flute. We'll cover identification, best gathering practices, materials storage and processing. Using knives, wood-burners, rubber bands and string we’ll make several types of flutes. $35 includes all required tools and materials. No Discounts.
