Are you thinking about visiting Japan? Do you want to understand some words and expressions in Japanese anime films? Do you want to learn about Japan and its culture? If so, this is great opportunity to take a beginning course in Japanese language which will introduce you to simple conversations and useful expressions. It will also offer practice in basic reading and writing skills that support the spoken language. Topics will include self-introductions, talking about yourself, asking questions, and describing people and things. We will also talk about the culture as it relates to the language topics. This course will be taught by a native Japanese instructor who has been teaching language for over 20 years.

We are so fortunate to offer another season of “Are You Afraid of Opera,” with our truly gifted and passionate instructor, Dr. Manuel Marquez-Sterling. His zeal for opera is contagious and participants find themselves truly enjoying each and every class. Manuel taught history at PSU for 35 years with a specialty in medieval history and culture. He also broadcasted the popular radio program “History in the Music of the Great and not so Great Composers” over WPCR, the PSU radio station.
Dr. Marquez-Sterling’ passion for opera has brought him to many venues, from academic halls to international cruises, and even traveling with groups of opera aficionados to countries including Italy, France, England, and Spain. For the last 28 years, he has taught a popular PSU community course “Are You Afraid of Opera?” Won’t you join us for the season?
