Written records of Japanese date to the 8th century, the oldest among them being the Kojiki (712; “Records of Ancient Matters”). If the history of the language were to be split in two, the division would fall somewhere between the 12th and 16th centuries, when the language shed most of its Old Japanese characteristics and acquired those of the modern language.
It is common, however, to divide the 1,200-year history into four or five periods; Old Japanese (up to the 8th century), Late Old Japanese (9th–11th century), Middle Japanese (12th–16th century), Early Modern Japanese (17th–18th century), and Modern Japanese (19th century to the present).
FEW good reasons to learn a new language
TO BE OR NOT TO BE (BILINGUAL)?
“Worthy of the “golden patience” trophy for good humor and creativity when facing student’s difficulties. Very competent in teaching, my teacher brings the beauty and the richness of the French language through historical and current themes (he is interested in everything!) Focused on the interest of the student and on activities that encourage to understand not only the rules of the language and the meaning of the words, but also the culture of which they are part. Learning the French language gave me a new perspective of the world and France.”
