JA 1H BEGINNING JAPANESE I HONORS

5 Units - 5 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
This Honors JA 1 is designed to develop the fundamentals of communicating in Japanese, including listening, comprehension, reading, and basic conversation. The emphasis is on the comprehension of native spoken and written Japanese. The course introduces reading and writing Japanese syllabic symbols and selected kanji characters. It also presents general aspects of Japanese culture. Throughout the course, the role of grammar is secondary to that of acquiring basic competency in reading, writing and speaking Japanese and inferring its meaning. JA 1 is equivalent to two years of high school Japanese. This honors course will be enriched through limited class size, an extensive research project and a presentation in Japanese. Credit may be earned in either JA 1 or 1H, but not both. NR
