Japanese for Heritage Speakers
The Oakland Nippongo Gakuen is forming a Japanese for Heritage Speakers class.  This course is intended for young students (generally in the range of 8-10 years old) who regularly speak some Japanese at home. 

The class is ideal for students who wish to maintain their basic conversational skills by regularly interacting with a native Japanese instructor and other Japanese speaking classmates only in a Japanese speaking environment.  Elementary level reading and writing skills will also be part of the curriculum.  Some knowledge of conversational Japanese or consent of the instructor is a prerequisite.

Classes are tentatively planned to begin in October on Saturday afternoons, 1:00 -3:00 pm.  Those interested in this class should contact Jon Takagaki by e-mail at, by phone in the evenings at 510-769-2975, or contact the temple office.
