Kanji from study materials. (Illustrated by Carrene Winter Tracy.)
This course covers JSL (Japanese: the Spoken Language, Part 1, by Eleanor H. Jorden with Mari Noda, Yale University Press, 1987) Lessons 12 through 17, providing opportunities to acquire basic skills for conversation, reading, and writing. The program emphasizes ACTIVE command of Japanese, not passive knowledge.

Students learn approximately 80 Kanji characters in this course.
