Course content and structure

Japanese6 is intended for qualified, intermediate students who are interested in Japanese business life and corporate communication.

Teaching is based on various resources i.e. authentic texts, conventional textbook material, adds, TV clips etc. The course provides the students with opportunities to articulate and debate their understanding of the topics in Japanese. After this course, the students should be prepared to read, talk about and discuss business related topics. We aim at expanding the range of vocabulary and level of fluency even further.

Teaching methods
Teaching methods are comprised of student led class discussions and presentations. Active involvement in class discussion and activities is expected of all participants, so students should come to class prepared to take part.
