Hours & Credits
This course is designed for advanced or very advanced students. It aims to improve each student's ability to manage his/her own learning experiences through consultation and discussion with the instructor and classmates. Students are expected to consider the relationship(s) among (1) the social group that they belong to, (2) the Japanese language, and (3) themselves, and then set their own goals and plans for learning Japanese. Next, they will write reports and make presentations about what they have learned from their overseas study experience, choosing appropriate material from their coursework and daily lives so as to acquire those aspects of Japanese language that they really need. In the process of doing these tasks, students will be expected to rapidly process large quantities of Japanese, express themselves to others in their own words, and resolve their questions about the differences between written and oral expressions and about society and culture.
