-these sections for graduates only
-meets with J201 undergraduate sections 8766 and 2175
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 class performance; homework assignments;
quizzes; a midterm and a final exam. The second volume of Genki will
be used as the main text.
