Third Year Japanese 1


This course is offered regularly during the fall term.


This is the first term of the third year Japanese language course. The primary goal of this course is the development of a broad competency in speaking and reading in a culturally coherent way using materials covering a wide range of academic and cultural interests. Advanced conversational patterns will be practiced, and the readings are selected to cover an additional 150 kanji.

Students register for a total of five class hours per week. The recitations are taught by native Japanese speakers, and are designed to provide further practice and reinforcement of material discussed in lecture classes.
