  • Overview

    Course Description
    These courses are designed for students with a non-Chinese language background. They are offered at two levels for those who are at Level II or equivalent in the core Japanese program (Kanji I), and for those who are at levels III to IV or the equivalent (Kanji II). Emphasis will be placed on providing students with alternative approaches to kanji through various tasks such as dividing one kanji onto its components, grouping kanji, and studying the morphology of kanji, rather than rote memorization.
