  • Overview

    These courses for students at levels 3 to 6 or the equivalent in the core curriculum provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to write simple notes and email, state their opinions using appropriate expressions and grammar, and eventually fully participate in academic activities (e.g., giving presentations in seminars and writing papers) with Japanese students. Students acquire the vocabulary and expressions necessary to structure compositions logically.

    (NOTE: Students are placed in appropriate levels. Writing skill levels may be different from overall proficiency for the core class. Those who wish to register for this course must first take a separate placement for writing courses. Detailed information is provided at the JLP Orientation and on the online course syllabus. Generally, "Writing I" corresponds to an overall proficiency of "3b" or higher.)
