  • Overview

    This course for advanced students at levels 5 to 6 or the equivalent in the core curriculum focuses on skills necessary to understand university lectures for native speakers of Japanese. Note taking, watching videos of real university lectures and learning to briefly summarize class content based on one's own notes and classroom materials, all prepare students to understand university lectures on their own. In the process students learn to evaluate their Japanese language skills objectively, allowing them to elevate their overall language ability.
