L1 Japanese Language & Culture

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss A. Rennie

Recommended Prior Learning

Successful completion of Year 10 Japanese or at the Leader of Learning’s discretion.

Students build on their learning from Year 10 and gain the language knowledge and skills needed to survive day-to-day life in Japan.  Lots of group work, story-telling, flipped learning, online support and topics negotiated according to student interest are all part of the fun.  Standards relating to all four language skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) are available but students are encouraged to enter those that play to their strengths and interests.  Cultural knowledge relating to daily life, history and food are also part of the course.
