Primary Instructor:

This course is designed for you to learn Novice (beginning)-level Japanese language in an intensive, semi-immersion setting. It is "intense" because we will study a normally two-semester amount of materials in one semester. It is "semi-immersion" in that in our classroom we constantly simulate authentic communicative interactions with speakers of Japanese, and will use the target language as much as possible while minimizing the use of English. Through extensive communication practice in classroom activities, we will work on developing all four skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing, using hiragana, katakana and 177 kanji) along with cultural understanding. You will learn to acquire a sentence-level command in limited topics around everyday life for college students. Most course-related activities are collaborative in nature. You are also required to attend minimum three hours of co-curricular activities, such as the Lunch Tables and Conversation Tables, per week. (No prior knowledge in Japanese is assumed; if you have studied Japanese before, the instructor's permission is required).
