JAPN 102
Elementary Japanese Spring 2023
Division I

Class Details

An introduction to modern spoken and written Japanese, the course aims to instill proficiency in Japanese by developing four necessary skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing to successfully interact with native speakers. The relationship between language and culture and the sociolinguistically appropriate use of language will be stressed throughout. Audio, video and computer–assisted learning materials will be used to facilitate learning. Classes consist of a combination of “act” classes, conducted exclusively in Japanese, where students use the language in various types of drills and communicative activities, and “fact” classes, conducted in Japanese and English, where students learn about the language and culture.
