  • Overview

    This low-intermediate Japanese course is for those who have completed elementary Japanese (approximately 300 classroom hours). It aims at further developing the four basic language skills. The strongest emphasis is on speaking properly in specific situations. Students practice different levels of speech (i.e., formal and informal styles), learn to give a short speech or report, take part in or preside over discussions, etc. Students also read materials with basic kanji and write short essays on specific topics.
