JAPN 211 - Third Level Japanese I
Designed for students who have successfully completed Second Level Japanese at Georgetown University or equivalent, this course provides integrative, proficiency-oriented language instruction that aims at improving students' interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational communication skills.  Students are expected to expand their competence in the following areas:  (a) engaging in spoken and/or written interpersonal communications dealing with both familiar and unfamiliar topics; (b) synthesizing information from a variety of authentic audio, visual, audio-visual, written and printed resources; and (c) successfully planning and producing spoken and/or written presentational communications. Through various spoken and/or written activities, students will (a) increase their linguistic and cultural knowledge as well as communication skills, (b) acquire socio-cultural knowledge that enables them to use appropriate register in real-world communicative situations, (c) deepen their understanding of the target culture by comparing and/or making connections to their own, (d) articulate their own thoughts and opinions in a coherent, persuasive manner, and (e) expand their circle of communication using Japanese.  Students are also expected to acquire effective learning strategies that help them become independent, strategic language learners who can increase their proficiency on their own.
