Overview

Mode of Attendance: Part-time

This course at SOAS Language Centre in London aims to provide a continuation for learners who have completed the Lower Intermediate level (post Minna no Nihongo book 1 and 2), with knowledge of approximately 450+ kanji. Students will start using semi-authentic materials and work beyond sentence level to a variety of discourses in communicative Japanese.

Method

The course is taught in English and Japanese and includes coverage of the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing and a good balance between understanding the systems of Japanese grammar and vocabulary, developing the skills of comprehending and producing Japanese in speech and writing, guided practice in language usage and use and authentic communicative activities. Class size is limited to fifteen to allow intensive interactive practice with individual feedback and advice on progress.
