[Online Japanese Language Workshop] The Art of Desu

Thursday, December 2, 2021 - Tuesday, December 7, 2021

This workshop introduces a variety of expressions and sentences using the Japanese copula verb of “desu.”  The lesson covers the basic sentence structure using adjectives, nouns, and “desu,” along with an introduction to the “wa” and “ga” particles. By emphasizing the different possibilities of “desu” and how easily the sentence structure can be applied, learners will be able to create some basic Japanese sentences on their own. This workshop is an extension of one of the topics covered in our beginner’s Japanese course, and is designed for beginning level learners who are looking for a deeper understanding of the basic sentence structure in Japanese. Note: prior knowledge of hiragana/katakana/kanji is not required to take this workshop.

This workshop will be conducted via Zoom. Attendees must have a device with audio and video capabilities, as well as an internet connection. The Japan-America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth reserves the right to cancel the workshop if it does not meet the minimum attendance number. Please contact us at if you have questions about this workshop and language classes.
