International exchange in Tottori Uni.

Intensive Japanese Language Course (Preliminary Japanese Language Education)

Targets and Objectives

This is the Center’s original Japanese course. We intensively provide the Japanese language education necessary for academic life every day for six months for government-sponsored international students (government-sponsored international research students, international teacher training students) who are recommended by Japanese embassies in foreign countries before students enroll in graduate school or start teacher training. This course teaches you Japanese conversation, grammar, kanji characters, IT, etc., to students who are studying Japanese for the very first time. A completion presentation event is held in Japanese in the end of this course.

Course Contents, Teaching Materials

Basic Japanese

The original textbook "Nihongo Nikoniko" and materials prepared by the instructors will be used. With familiar topics as a base, while learning basic expressions, students will learn to communicate in basic Japanese.

Kanji and Sentences

Using the textbook "Minna no Nihongo Shokyu 1 Kanji (English version)" (Publisher: 3aNetwork), students will study the basics of kanji. Through study of kanji seen in everyday life, the number of recognizable kanji will increase. Little by little, students will be able to read and write longer sentences.

Comprehensive Japanese Seminar

Previously-learned contents will be synthesized and applied, and the questions of each student will be answered.

Japanese and Computers

Students will learn basic operations of computers with Japanese operating systems and practice the Japanese input system while learning computer related Japanese terminologies which are useful for research activities.

Japanese Culture and Society

Various important Japanese cultural situations that international students may encounter while living in Japan will be considered. Knowledge will be deepened, and students will engage in discussion.
