JPNS 012. Third-Year Japanese
These courses aim to lead Japanese students into the intermediate-advanced level, deepening students' exposure to Japanese culture through the study of authentic materials and the application of language skills in diverse linguistic contexts. They will combine oral practice with reading, viewing, and discussion of authentic materials including newspaper articles, video clips, and literary selections. Students will continue to develop their expressive ability through use of more advanced grammatical patterns and idiomatic expressions, and will gain practice in composition and letter writing. These courses will introduce approximately 300 new kanji characters in addition to approximately 500 covered in first- and second-year Japanese.
Prerequisite: Completion of JPNS 004 or demonstration of equivalent language skills. These courses are recommended to be taken together with JPNS 012A in the fall semester and JPNS 013A in the spring semester, which will provide additional opportunities for application and extension of newly acquired skills.
