Tottori Campus

Japanese A

Based on topics contained in the  "Nihongo Nikoniko" textbook, this course allows students to study the fundamentals of communicating in Japanese, and learn essential Japanese expressions.

Japanese B

Based on the latter half of the textbook Dekiru Nihongo Shokyu published by Alc, students will learn basic sentence patterns and expressions so that they can perform better communication. Students will also learn to read and write relatively short articles, using the first half of Tanoshii Yomimono 55 published by Alc.

Japanese C

Based on the textbook Dekiru Nihongo Sho-chukyu published by Alc, students will learn new expressions by connecting them with the expressions they have already acquired so that they will be able to understand and express situations and feelings more accurately. Students will also learn to read and write relatively long articles, using the latter half of Tanoshii Yomimono 55 published by Alc.

Japanese D

By using the textbook Dekiru Nihongo Chukyu published by Alc, students will improve their thinking power and communicative competence for attaining the goal of their action, based on the theme of each unit. Also, composition time is set up once a week, and students practice so that they can summarize their opinions about a designated topic appropriately or write a text that fits the purpose or situation.

Kangi workshop

Students may choose any text they like; they will learn kanji at their own pace with a Japanese student as a partner. (If you already have a Kanji textbook, please bring it along with you.)
