Students will fill in the details of the broad framework of the language presented in the preceding units. Further grammatical patterns of Japanese will be introduced in practical and usable contexts, and students will develop the appreciation of more subtle expressions in Japanese language and gain the skills to use them in appropriate contexts. Emphasis will be placed on the use of appropriate modes of expression in free and guided conversational and comprehension activities. Situations that will be covered include making suggestions, giving and receiving directions, invitations and expressing opinions. Study of the writing system will be accelerated and students will read and write texts of increasing lengths. The unit takes a comprehensive approach to developing the skills of speaking, listening, writing and reading.
- By the end of the unit students will considerably extend their understanding of the fundamental grammatical patterns and the subtlety of expressions, and be expected to be able to use them in speaking, reading and writing; have the sociolinguistic competence to select culturally appropriate modes of expressions; be able to recognise and use further 79 Kanji and have developed further socio-cultural competence. In addition, students will have developed essential generic skills and attributes such as time management and self-motivated learning strategies including the ability to apply themselves to tasks consistently over extended periods of time.
