JAPANESE I AND II

Do you want to learn the language of the country, which brought anime and video games to the world? The class is fun and exciting, but also challenging, so prepare to study seriously (a lot of memorization required). In this class, we will:
• Listen, speak, read, and write Japanese
• Discover the culture through various media
• Engage in activities such as songs, calligraphy, and “manga” creation

Japanese I introduces students to the basic skills- listening, speaking, reading, and writing – and to the basic structures of Japanese taught within the cultural context. Areas of study include expression, comprehension, language and culture, cultures, language functions, connections, and personal applications. Emphasis is placed on oral, written, communication skills, and cultural activities.

Japanese II continues the focus on the basic language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing as well as encouraging a deeper appreciation of Japanese culture and language. Areas of study include expression, comprehension, language and culture, cultures, language functions, connections, and personal applications. Emphasis is placed on applying oral, written, communication skills to personal, academic, and cultural activities.
