Unformatted text preview: First Year Japanese I (C 1101 / F 1101) / Fall 2009 General Information I. Course Objective First Year Japanese I will introduce you to basic Japanese grammar and Japanese culture. The aim of this course is to acquire the four basic skills in modern Japanese: speaking, listening comprehension, reading, and writing. We will emphasize accuracy and fluency in both spoken and written Japanese communication. At the end of the course, you will be able to: Speaking: Handle daily situations such as telling time, inviting someone to an event, and making requests. Listening: Understand what others say in daily conversations and monologues. Reading: Understand simple passages written in HIRAGANA, KATAKANA, and KANJI about such topics as one's daily routines and cities in Japan. Writing: Write letters and passages that tell about yourself and people/things/events related to you. You will also learn about Japanese culture so that you become both grammatically correct and socially appropriate. II.
