Japanese Film (Beginner/Intermediate Level)

Besides samurai, geisha, and the wild world of anime, what do you really know about Japan? In this 4-week course we will view a selection of post-war Japanese films, both classic and contemporary, to deepen our knowledge of Japanese society as a whole. Students will view one film a week and come together for a Zoom session where we will cover that week’s movie, its background, and related Japanese. This course will be tailored to beginner to intermediate level speakers, and its contents will focus on the skills needed to understand, comment on, and critique films as well as their context. This course is specifically designed for youth ages 12-17.

Session – Summer 2020

This four-week short course will meet on Tuesdays at 4:30pm from July 14 – August 4 on Zoom. In addition, students who sign up for this class will also be able to sign up for discounted one-on-one Japanese tutoring for just $20/hr.

Kyle SmithInstructor — Japanese
I was born and raised in Bend but now live in Tokyo, Japan. I moved to Tokyo after graduating from Summit High in 2015 to study at the University of Tokyo, from which I graduated with a BA in Humanities and Social Sciences. Beginning as a high school freshman, I have now been studying Japanese for 8 years as a second language. My Japanese studies have become invaluable to me living in Tokyo for the past 5 year and beyond as I begin to start my career here. I have experience as an English conversation tutor and with Japanese to English translation in Japan, but most importantly I understand the struggles of learning Japanese as a native English speaker. I’m looking forward to applying these experiences to offer fun and informative online courses in a way best suited to Japanese learners in Bend!
