BEGINNING JAPANESE I (GH)
Japanese 101 is the first semester of a two-semester, beginning Japanese language course which emphasizes oral skills but also introduces the written language (hiragana and katakana syllabaries). It also exposes students to the culture of Japan.
BEGINNING JAPANESE III (GH)
This is a third semester of sequence of Japanese language instruction. Entering students are expected to have mastered basics of the writing system (hirigana and katakana and approximately 300 Kanji characters), know elementary gramar and have a basic vocabulary with listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. This course develops the four skill areas (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in order to cultivate an overall Japanese language ability. Using the course materials, which include the most frequently used daily vacabulary, students will apply what they have to their daily activity. The course prepares students for Intermediate-Level Japanese.
INTERMEDIATE JAPANESE II (GH)
Intermediate Japanese II is the second intermediate course in spoken and written Japanese. Students will continue to learn basic structural patterns of the Japanese language and be encouraged to further develop their proficiency in all four skill areas of the language. As an intermediate course, however, increased attention will be given to the reading and writing in the Japanese writing system. Students will also learn aspects of Japanese culture that related to the lesson topics.
