JAPNS 404 Level Four Japanese B (3)
This is a four credit course designed for those who have completed Level Four Japanese A or the equivalent. The course aims to further develop students’ proficiency in all four language skills. Students will study several topics such as Japanese popular culture and issues in contemporary Japan for content-based language learning throughout the semester. For each topic variety of media will be used—newspaper articles, essays, short stories, TV programs, movies, etc. The majority of reading and writing assignments will be done outside class, with some guidance from the instructor. That will help students become more independent in studying Japanese. They will use appropriate resources such as dictionaries, reference books, online dictionaries and other online resources depending on their individual needs.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
