Description

ASIANLAN 325 is designed for students who have completed second year Japanese or have the equivalent of two-year study of Japanese at the University of Michigan. Under the same course number of ASIANLAN 325, we offer two tracks with different focuses: a regular section and a STEM section. The regular section focuses on cultivating an intermediate level of linguistic, pragmatic, and socio-cultural language competence. Course readings, conversation exercises and class discussion will introduce new grammar structures, vocabulary, expressions and various aspects of Japanese culture. In order to improve all four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing), various projects will also be assigned throughout the term. The STEM section is a class designed for students who major in science, technology, engineering, and math, with the goal to connect your language learning with your field of interest. The course introduces STEM-related contents and vocabulary, and you will perform fun and meaningful task-based activities in order to acquire practical Japanese language skills.

By the end of the course, students in the regular section will be able to:

  • Read intermediate-level materials with a solid understanding of sentence structure.
  • Write intermediate-level essays, using appropriate grammatical forms and sentence structures regarding familiar topics, such as issues in Japanese culture and society.
  • Speak at an intermediate-mid level of proficiency as defined by the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview.
  • Use appropriate speech styles and communication strategies for various settings.
  • Produce/recognize approximately 600 kanji in context.

By the end of the course, students in the STEM section will be able to:

  • Read intermediate-level materials with a solid understanding of sentence structure.
  • Write intermediate-level essays, using appropriate grammatical forms and sentence structures regarding familiar topics, such as issues in Japanese culture and society.
