Designed for students who have had approximately 400 hours of instruction at the college level. Students coming into this course should be able to read about 500 to 800 kanji. A variety of materials—essays, short stories, TV programs and newspaper articles—will be used as texts. These materials are chosen not only as tools for language instruction, but also as a means to increase understanding of the socio-cultural background of contemporary Japan. The aim is to get students to function at an advanced level: to be able to read most modern Japanese written materials with the aid of a dictionary and to be able to handle most conversational tasks, including formal situations, with relative ease.
