Due to the circumstances around COVID-19, you will begin your semester 2 studies online in 2021. However, when Government guidelines change, on-campus studies will be reintroduced.
The University of Tasmania has partnered with Macquarie University in the teaching of some languages. While we are teaching on-campus third year units in Japanese at UTAS, if you wish to study fully online you will need to enrol in the equivalent unit at Macquarie University. To do so, please complete an application for Cross-Institutional Study and submit to UTAS UConnect to apply for cross-institutional enrolment in the equivalent Macquarie University unit.
Once you have submitted your application, we will notify you of our approval and provide further instruction on applying to Macquarie University.
Building on previous Japanese language study, this 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.
