Module Synopsis
This course builds on the groundwork laid in Japanese III, and takes students to a higher level of proficiency in Japanese and a stronger communicative competence in using Japanese in various social contexts and for a variety of purposes. It also aims to enable students to understand more complex speech and written texts compared to those in Japanese III. By the end of the course, students will be able to engage in informal conversations on a wider range of topics, at near-natural speed. Students will generally be able to follow the contents of daily conversations as well as grasp the relationship between the people involved. They will also have the ability to understand and summarise the main points of slightly more complex texts. In addition, students will be able to write short texts to express their opinions about everyday topics. The course prepares students for the N4 level of Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).
