Modern Japan in Modern Japanese
【学習方法(Methods)】 Students in the course will be expected to actively participate in and contribute to classes. It is not about rote learning, but instead requires that students always take the initiative in discussing their countries’ unique points and their own personal experiences in actively exchanging opinions with the professor and other classmates. Important grammar structures and vocabulary will be explained in English, but students are expected to adopt an attitude of actively putting Japanese into practice. Classes will take advantage of a main textbook, but a wide variety of supplementary materials will be used to provide further detail on the topics discussed. The next week’s topic will be presented to students, who are then to prepare to discuss it from their individual experiences and against the cultural background of their countries in Japanese.
【受講者に期待する達成レベル(Goal)】 The main objective is for all those who have successfully completed the course to not just acquire vocabulary and expressions to discuss topics above and beyond everyday life in Japanese, but also to gain the confidence to speak in Japanese. Another objective is to gain knowledge needed to further understand Japanese traditions and Japanese ways of thinking.
