Japanese II

    EXGEN 3143 is offered this spring:

The course will start with a review of basic sen­tence struc­ture, vocab­u­lary, and use­ful dai­ly expres­sions and move on to more com­plex gram­mat­i­cal rules, espe­cial­ly the inflec­tion of verbs and adjec­tives. We will increase our vocab­u­lary and spe­cial idiomat­ic expres­sions used in dai­ly life in Japan. Eng­lish will be used to explain gram­mat­i­cal points only. You will be encour­aged to use the tar­get lan­guage as much as pos­si­ble. Upon com­ple­tion of this course you will be able to han­dle day to day sit­u­a­tions in Japan with more ease. You will be able to express your feel­ings and ideas on cer­tain top­ics with more con­fi­dence. Com­ple­tion of EXGEN 3138 is strong­ly recommended.
