  • Overview

    These courses for students at levels 4 to 6 or the equivalent in the core curriculum provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to rapidly process large quantities of authentic Japanese written material. Students read various materials on society and culture to improve their reading skills. "Reading I" focuses on speed reading large quantities of material, whereas "Reading II" and "Reading III" have the additional goal of achieving deeper understanding of the material. Those who plan to continue to study Japanese at a higher level in the following semester are strongly advised to take one of these courses.

    (NOTE: Students are placed in appropriate levels. Reading skill levels may be different from overall proficiency for the core curriculum. Those who wish to register for this course must first take a separate placement for reading courses. Generally "Reading I" corresponds to an overall proficiency of "3b" or higher.)
