    Syllabus

    Students will further develop their knowledge of the grammatical structures in Japanese language, so that by the end of this semester they will have encountered most of the major grammatical patterns of Japanese. Emphasis will be placed on the use of appropriate modes of expression, in particular the use of honorific language, in free and guided conversational and comprehension activities. Situations that will be covered include making asking a favour politely, gossiping, working at a restaurant, conversation in a business context. For the study of the writing system, 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.
