The course builds upon the knowledge and skills gained in Japanese IIIB. In order to facilitate students' progress from the higher elementary to the intermediate level, this course aims to extend students' language skills by using authentic Japanese language sources, including online videos and written materials. In this course, emphasis is placed on the application of students' language training developed so far, particularly in the areas of vocabulary, grammar and Kanji, to the retrieval of online information on discussion topics. By the end of this course, students will be equipped with the necessary language skills and linguistic knowledge for accessing a variety of websites written in Japanese, using online language tools. At the same time, emphasis is also placed on developing students' language skills to be able to scan, skim and critically analyse Japanese language texts available online. In order to develop students' ability to form and express their own opinions using appropriate register in Japanese, a selection of online materials related to Japanese culture, society and certain aspects of language will be used as discussion materials.
