This course is designed to develop students’ basic communicative competence in speaking, listening to, reading, and writing modern Japanese. Emphasis is on active command of Japanese, not passive knowledge. The goal is not simply to acquire grammar and vocabulary, but to be able to use Japanese appropriately in various situations. We will focus on developing accuracy and fluency in basic grammatical structures of Japanese and the functions of language in daily life situations. This is a course for real beginners. Students who have taken Japanese 11 and/or Japanese 12, or other Japanese courses, or who have prior knowledge of Japanese, should not take this course. JAPN 160 is the prerequisite for JAPN 260 or JAPN 200. In order to take these courses you must achieve a final grade of at least 60% in this course (see Policy below). C OURSE G OALS By the end of this course you will have acquired an ample grounding in basic grammar and the skills necessary to function in various limited daily and social situations. You will also have developed an awareness of the sociolinguistic aspects of the Japanese language. You will be able to handle topics including your personal background, experiences, preferences, needs, interests, and plans in forms beyond simple sentences. You will also be able to give information and reasons to support points of views and make comparisons. You will start to feel more at ease communicating in unrehearsed contexts and will be able to:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
