Japanese 3C HMJ316

Hobart, Launceston



Building on previous Japanese language study, this joint capstone unit aims to develop students' oral skills and production skills both in spoken and written formats. Students will develop conversation skills beyond everyday life situations through pair work and group work with unit classmates as well as with native Japanese speakers where possible. Students will work across a range of language genre (polite to humble) and a selection of topics related to everyday life in Japan. Students will conduct a small scale self-directed survey to produce a written summary report and an oral presentation in Japanese.
