Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course is designed to provide practical skills and knowledge in Japanese language at intermediate level to the students that have passed “Basic Japanese I". Through the duration of the course students develop sufficient competency in Japanese to achieve numerous communicative objectives. The course will help students to build their proficiency in intermediate Japanese across all four skill areas —— listening, speaking, reading, and writing —— while also providing them with a deeper understanding of Japan and its culture. It is expected that by the end of the course students will reach B1 level according to CEFR and N3 level according to JLPT. Pre-requisites As the course is taught in Russian, the knowledge of Russian language (Intermediate level and upper) is a formal pre-requisite for HSE students wishing to enroll the course. “Japanese Language Basic Course II” continues “Japanese Language Basic Course I” so HSE students wishing to enroll the course are required to pass the final exam on Japanese Language Basic Course I.
