The goal of this course is for the students to continue to improve
communicative skills in Japanese and to become more well-rounded in
their overall skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing).
This course will introduce more kanji.
Each week, the class meets in two large-group (TR) and three small-
group (MWF) sessions. The TR sessions primarily introduce and
explain the lesson; use of Japanese by students is encouraged, but
students may use English to ask questions on aspects of grammar or
culture. Use of Japanese by both instructors and students is
mandatory in the MWF sessions, which are devoted primarily to
practicing what has been introduced in the TR sessions.
Course requirements include small-class performance; large-class
attendance; homework assignments; quizzes; a midterm and a final
exam. The second volume of Nakama will be used as the main text.
