Japanese Spring 2022 Courses

JAPAN102- Japanese II. 11345, MTWU 11:30-12:20 with Dr. Miki Loschky. Building on the basic patterns and structures of the Japanese language acquired in Japanese I and through highly interactive in-class activities, students will further develop their comprehension (listening and reading skills) and production (speaking and writing skills). In addition to the two phonetic alphabets (i.e., ひらがなand カタカナ) that have already been mastered in Japanese I, the students will learn approximately 130 kanji characters used in Japanese writing. Course Prerequisites: JAPAN 101 or equivalent  JAPAN301- Japanese IV. 11346, MTWU 1:30-2:20 with Dr. Miki Loschky. The main objective of this course is to further develop four language skills in Japanese (listening, speaking, reading, and writing). As the program emphasizes active command of Japanese, not passive accumulation of knowledge, your goal is not simply to study the grammar and vocabulary of the Japanese language, but also to gain necessary skills and develop the ability to use them in a way that is linguistically and culturally appropriate. This course covers the second six lessons of the “Genki II” textbook(lesson 19--23).   Course Prerequisites: JAPAN 300 or equivalent

 

JAPAN592- Japanese 6. 14446, MTWU 3:30 - 4:20 p.m. with  Dr. Loschky. This course is a comprehensive intermediate Japanese language course for those who have completed the elementary level. It provides well-balanced development of the four language skills – reading, writing, speaking, and listening – through study of the grammar, expressions, and strategies needed to communicate at the intermediate level.  The program emphasizes active command of language, not passive accumulation of linguistic knowledge. Your goal is not to study the grammar and vocabulary of the Japanese language in isolation, but to gain necessary skills and develop the ability to use them in a way that is linguistically and culturally appropriate.  Course Prerequisites: JAPAN 591 or equivalent
