LANG: Beginner’s Japanese 11
Workbooks (Approx. $55) are available to purchase or borrow.
This is an intensive course that combines both Japanese 9 and 10 and is intended for grade 10, 11, or 12 students who are studying Japanese for the first time. No previous experience is necessary. Students will be introduced to the three Japanese scripts (hiragana, katakana, and kanji) and will be provided with opportunities to write, read and communicate in Japanese. Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to understand basic Japanese and communicate in a limited number of situations. The course will be based on dialogues dealing with familiar settings of home, school, and the community. Japanese culture will be emphasized and students will be exposed to the culture through picture studies, films, discussions, and field trips where possible. The language, culture, and history of Japan will be studied in a Canadian and International context. Beginner Japanese 11 OR Japanese 10 is strongly recommended for students wanting to take Japanese 11.
