This third quarter of a year-long sequence covers the second year of Japanese language studies. Students must be familiar with basic verb forms and elementary kanji letters. Students will build on previous skills and learn new grammar and vocabulary so they can function in a variety of situations. Class activities will include presentations and watching video clips on social and cultural topics. We will discuss Japanese culture and life throughout the course. Students will have focused studies on conversation skills, reading, or kanji. The class is conducted primarily in Japanese.
Students who have already completed two years of Japanese may join this class and study at the third year level.
This is a good preparatory course for students interested in participating in Evergreen's exchange program with University of Miyazaki or University of Hyogo in Japan.
