Online Japanese - Intermediate Japanese II

Course Description

The Intermediate Japanese II course is the final semester of a four-semester online sequence in Japanese. The course will build upon the four critical language skills — speaking, listening, writing, and reading, including kanji — that you have developed through Intermediate Japanese I. You can choose your own time to study, except for weekly virtual classroom sessions that are held at a designated time to practice speaking with an instructor and other learners. The mid-term and final exam must be administered by a prearranged exam proctor at the location of your choice.
