Online Japanese - Intermediate Japanese II

Course Description

This course is the final semester of a four-semester online sequence in Japanese. The course will build upon four critical language skills (speaking, listening, writing, and reading including kanji) you have developed through Intermediate Japanese I. The course will introduce transitive vs. intranstive expressions, advanced conditional expressions and complex predicates such as "must," "while," "appearance" and so on. You will be exposed to conversations at the bank and learn to conduct longer discourse. Students can choose their own time to study except for weekly virtual classroom sessions to practice speaking with an instructor and other students. Virtual classrooms are scheduled to be held at designated time. The mid-term and final exam must be administered by a prearranged exam proctor at the location of student's choice.
