Intermediate Japanese

The objective of the Japanese 2A-2B-2C series aims to help students to improve their communication skills in more complicated situations and on more abstract topics, and to foster students in becoming competent and culturally-literate users of Japanese. Students will not only learn about Japanese culture and society, but also are expected to become able to acquire and construct knowledge of culture on their own and express their thoughts and opinions regarding these issues by the end of the series. Students will learn more advanced grammatical patterns and useful expressions in Japanese and expand their vocabulary. About 330 more Kanji will be introduced.
