  • Overview

    This course for intermediate students at levels 3 to 4 or the equivalent in the core curriculum focuses on activities outside the classroom. Its goals are; to expose students to diverse forms of expression, allow them to experience authentic Japanese society and culture, help them gain confidence in using the Japanese language, and have them think about methods of language study outside the classroom. Activities, arranged to meet student interests, may include: shopping, cooking, observing a traditional Japanese event such as a local festival, making an appointment by phone, and paying a home visit. Normally, each activity is conducted following preparation in class or at home. No textbook is used, and transportation expenses, admission fees, and other actual costs are borne by the students.
