Pre-Intermediate Japanese Language Course

Pre-Intermediate Japanese Language Course (once per week)

Course Overview

The aim of this course is to prepare you for the level B1. Words and sentence patterns are introduced that enrich adult learners’ expression of feelings, experiences, and so on. We aim to be able to deal with most situations likely arise whilst travelling in Japan, produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or personal interest, describe experiences, events hopes or ambitious and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.

This course consists of 5 modules. Module 2 to 5 can be taken in any order because the course book is organised by topic, not by grammar and vocabulary.

You will also practice reading Kanji during lessons.
