Primary Instructor:

This course is designed for you to learn Novice-High/Intermediate-Low-level Japanese language in an intensive, semi-immersion setting. It is "intense" because we will study a normally two-term amount of materials in one. 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 approximately 350 kanji) along with cultural understanding. Most course-related activities are collaborative in nature. You will learn to acquire a sentence/paragraph-level command in various topics around everyday life for college students and beyond. You are also required to attend minimum three hours of co-curricular activities, such as the Lunch Tables and Conversation Tables, per week.

In order to undertake ASIANLAN 325: Third Year Japanese, you must pass the Placement Test at the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures).

Course Requirements:

Student performance will be evaluated on the basis of: (1) attendance at class sessions, lunch-tables, and other extra-classroom activities; (2) fulfillment of homework assignments; (3) frequent in-class tests; and (4) a final exam.
