  • Overview

    This course for advanced students at levels 5 to 6 or the equivalent in the core curriculum is based on activities outside the classroom. Its goals are; to expose students to diverse forms of expression, provide them with opportunities to experience authentic Japanese society and culture, help them gain confidence, and have them think about methods of language study outside the classroom. Activities, arranged to meet student interests, may include observing a trial at a local court, visiting and collecting information at a travel agency, observing a traditional Japanese event such as a local festival, making an appointment by phone, and paying a home visit. Each activity is conducted following reparation in class or at home. No textbook is used. Transportation expenses, admission fees, and other actual costs are borne by students.
