This advanced level course has two goals:
(1) to provide students with additional knowledge and skills necessary for lectures and participation in discussions, and for developing and deepening friendships in Japanese;
(2) To improve each student's ability to manage his/her own learning experiences through consultation and discussions with the instructor and classmates. Regarding knowledge building, students learn vocabulary, expressions, and grammatical items used in materials such as introductory books in various fields of study and newspapers.
In skills development, students practice rapidly processing large quantities of information in Japanese and expressing themselves in their own words. Students also reflect on what they have learned in and outside the classroom with the goal of becoming autonomous learners who can manage the process of learning on their own.
