Japanese, Post-Beginners



This course is offered subject to minimum registration numbers.

Continuing from the Introduction to Japanese Language and Culture course, this course is designed to extend learners’ ‘survival’ repertoire of spoken Japanese and their knowledge of the Japanese writing system (there is regular practice in character composition and recognition). Aspects of the cultural background are also dealt with.
