  • Overview

    This course is for advanced students at levels 5 to 6 or the equivalent in the core curriculum as well as for dgree-seeking students in their second year or higher who wish to further improve their academic writing skills after completing "Japanese Language Foundations AI." (It is recommended that RJ students register for "Japanese (Writing)," rather than this course, unless they are specifically interested in improving skills in writing academic essays.) Students practice writing in a clear and logical manner at both sentence and paragraph levels in a suitable academic style. They then learn step by step how to put their paragraphs in a logical order.
