JP 301I - Japanese Language in Context Emerging Independent Abroad I

This class is for students with four semesters of Japanese instruction or the equivalent. Students review elementary Japanese grammar and learn intermediate grammar through various exercises such as reading short essays and writing short paragraphs. The students are provided with different opportunities to practice conversation skills through field trips, visitor sessions, or in daily life. Students learn conversation strategies to communicate in real life situations smoothly.

This course is designed to strengthen what students’ study in class and to promote communicative competence by interacting with Japanese people outside of the classroom. The Instructor will provide students various tasks to interact with host families, center staff, friends, and visitors. Through these interactions, students and their interlocuters learn to negotiate and understand the meaning of each other’s utterances.
