A tutorial in Basic Japanese will be offered by Kazuo Nakajima. The tutorial will be conducted entirely in Japanese, and will be an introduction to the language through the study of basic grammatical structures, oral expressions, and simple composition. The emphasis will be on the spoken language in everyday usage.

The tutorial, which will continue in the Spring, will meet four days a week for one hour, on Tuesday through Friday mornings from 11:00 to 12:00, in Olin 303, and will be worth four language credits.

Students interested in registering for the tutorial should see Kazuo Nakajima on registration day in Olin 201.

In offering this tutorial the college is making available basic instruction in a language not currently taught at Bard. This does not, however, mark the establishment of a fully fledged program in Japanese with upper level courses in Japanese language and literature.
