JAPAN 160 (Fall 2014)

Comment: Hasegawa sensei is very knowledgable, definitely more than the average native Japanese speaker. She's super funny, very kind, and cares about all her students. She responds to email even at 3AM and always grades homework assignments within 12 hours of submission. She pushes everyone to further explore and think about things we discuss in class, so you end up learning a lot about both the Japanese language and a fair amount of linguistics that is not covered in other classes at UCB. The exams were a bit trivial, but the grading is very generous in this class so it all balances out in the end. Excellent class and highly recommended for anyone (including native speakers, students of Japanese, people who are planning on teaching English in Japan, and especially teachers of Japanese without linguistics training) who can fit it into their schedule.

Comment: Hasegawa sensei always goes above and beyond for her students. I personally liked J160 more, but J161 was pretty interesting too. The weekly homework assignments took some time (and a native speaker to help), but you learn a lot about Japanese in this class that language classes don't cover. Great class!
