Intermediate Japanese Grammar and Speaking

Course Code: JSL218
The goal of this course is to review and acquire basic grammar. Even with a rich knowledge of vocabulary, students sometimes lack the skills for practical application if they do not understand grammar. This course is designed to help you "tidy up" on the Japanese skills that you have already learned through daily conversation practice in Japanese. Students will learn accurate sentence patterns,expressions,accent, and intonation that will enable them to speak more naturally and correctly. The course will mainly focus on listening and speaking exercises, but will also include several reading practices.

This course may be repeatable more than once. It will also benefit students who plan to take the JLPT.
