JAPN 123 - Intensive Japanese I

This intensive course, taught eight hours per week for the first seven weeks of the semester, covers the materials presented in JAPN 121  at an accelerated pace; it introduces the four basic skills of speaking, listening comprehension, reading, and writing. The emphasis is on thorough mastery of the basic structures of Japanese through intensive aural-oral practice and extensive use of audiovisual materials. The two kana syllabaries and about 100 Kanji (characters) are introduced toward the goals of developing reading skills and reinforcing grammar and vocabulary acquisition. Successful completion of both JAPN 123 & JAPN 124  qualifies students for the Japan Study Group in the fall.
