An outline of how to present the Japanese language to people who have never studied Japanese before. Although the presentation was intended for presenting at anime conventions, it works just as well as a first day lesson in Japanese I or a way to give prospective students an overview of the Japanese language in order to encourage them to sign up to take Japanese. This presentation has also been given at several public libraries. The outline was written for people with a background in Japanese, but who may not have had any experience teaching, with cautionary notes on what not to teach during the one hour allotted for the presentation. A Power Point presentation (separate purchase) is available which has sample sentences in it for participants to practice what they are learning.
