Japanese Language 1B


This integrated course is for those who have passed JAPANESE 130 or who have achieved NCEA Level 2 or equivalent in Japanese. The course aims to develop the basic proficiency in modern Japanese necessary to communicate in limited situations. The course will use a range of exercises and activities to develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills as well as strategies to enhance and support these skills. The course will introduce some sociocultural aspects directly related to language use situations. The prescribed textbook can be obtained from the University Bookshop. Students must attend the plenary lecture plus streamed classes.

Important information

For those of you who did not study JAPANESE 130 at the University of Auckland, you must complete a Language Ability Declaration and you may be called for an interview and a placement test. Once we have determined that this course is appropriate for your proficiency level, your concession request will be approved.
