Japanese Project Work A University of Tsukuba
Students will complete project work based themes they set themselves. They will aim to expand their vocabulary and stock of expressions through coming into contact with native Japanese, and employ all the Japanese they have studied up to this point.
In order to know more about Japan, students will compare and analyze the transformation of culture (acculturation) and language in Japan and in their own country, and think about processes of change and the possible reasons for these. Students will learn to explain their thoughts and ideas in Japanese clearly and plainly.
In this course, we will create a short message video. We also discuss various topics relating to minds of Japanese and Japanese culture.
