Course description and objectives: This is a beginning level course in Japanese for students who have no or very little prior experience in the language. A multi-skill approach will be adopted in teaching, giving equal emphasis to the training of standard pronunciation, listening comprehension, grammar and vocabulary usage. By the end of this course, you will be able to communicate with basic vocabulary and sentences in Japanese such as introducing yourself, asking directions, expressing likes and dislikes, ordering food, shopping and so on. You will also learn Hiragana, Katakana and 60 Kanji through the semester and be able to write short paragraph such as about yourself and your daily routines. Through the semester, you will also be introduced many aspects of Japanese culture. Learning Strategies: Language learning is calmative. Therefore, I strongly encourage you to study vocabulary, grammar, Kanji, etc. every day. Previewing and reviewing the materials that you learn in class every day is crucial in order to keep up in class and succeed in this course . Make a habit to check the bi-monthly schedule everyday to know, what you are going to learn, what you have leaned and also keep up your study habits. In order to know what you do not understand, reviewing is also important. Your instructor will introduce some learning strategies and tools throughout the semester so that you can get involved and become responsible for your own learning! Grading:
