Level 2 Japanese

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss J. Vincent

Recommended Prior Learning

Study of Japanese in Year 11.

The course continues to develop the skills needed to understand and use every day written and spoken Japanese. The course is being able to communicate effectively in less familiar contexts. Students have to be committed to learning vocabulary and language features, and to preparing their portfolios for internal assessments. Cultural studies are integrated into the course. All standards are at Level 2.

The topics covered in level 2 are broader than in level 1. We will do a lot of comparisons between Aotearoa culture and Japanese culture. We will talk about trends and activities for young people in Japan and in Aotearoa.
