Advanced Japanese IV - JPS404

This unit is designed to develop skills in all areas of Japanese language (reading, writing, listening and speaking) to an advanced level of proficiency. Students learn to discuss a wide range of topics as well as substantially increase their knowledge of vocabulary and kanji. Materials include authentic Japanese texts chosen from a wide range of genres in order to expose students to a variety of writing styles and expressions which they can then use in their own work. This unit covers socio-linguistic aspects of Japanese communication including register, pragmatics and rhetorical conventions which will contribute to the development of students' intercultural competence, enabling them to communicate in a manner which is culturally as well as linguistically appropriate. Students will be encouraged to sit for level N1 or N2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) at the completion of this unit. The use of online resources provides students with opportunities to use Japanese as much as possible.
