This course will focus on improving students’ verbal communication skills in Japanese.

Students will use the vocabulary, expressions and grammatical points covered in previous Japanese language courses. New vocabulary, expressions and grammatical points as well as some basic communication strategies in conversations (asking for clarification of the meaning of what someone said, showing the listener that one is thinking, etc.) will also be introduced as needed. In the process, students will learn to speak in a proper manner in Japanese society. They will also be directed to pay more attention to speaking Japanese with proper speed and pronunciation compared to lower-level classes.
