Japanese Level 3 is designed for students who have intermediate proficiency in the language and want to develop their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. It is equivalent to the 3rd-Year curriculum in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Indiana University.
This course is designed for students with Intermediate Mid proficiency who want to develop more advanced speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Students who complete the course successfully will reach Intermediate High proficiency.
Working with authentic materials showcasing Japanese culture, students will improve their mastery of the linguistic and cultural skills they need in order to function effectively in a Japanese-speaking environment. They will be able to understand news, videos, podcasts, chats, stories, literature etc. with ease, and to interact confidently with native speakers in a wide range of contexts.
The program introduces Japanese culture through authentic materials and media, as well as Japanese-language activities and structured interactions with Japanese speakers.
