(Open to students at all proficiency levels)

This action-oriented course makes the most of the short-term study abroad environment by focusing on the situations that students encounter while in Japan. Depending on the level of proficiency, students will either learn basic grammatical structures and vocabulary or reinforce and fully utilize previously studied grammar while expanding vocabulary to accomplish more challenging communicative goals. Interaction with Japanese students is emphasized.In this course, students will learn to use the language to achieve actual communicative goals in Japanese. Examples of the situations that call for the use of various linguistic forms are introducing oneself (e.g., at an international party, to a Japanese family), exchanging useful information on the neighborhood and surrounding towns, getting around & using public transportation, solving communication-related problems, describing cultural artifacts & asking questions, talking about events, inviting someone to outings, talking about customs, manners, cultural differences, one’s hometown, etc. with a Japanese family, and so on.Students with differing degrees of proficiency in Japanese will work toward the achievement of the goals set according to their level, keeping “can-do statements” in mind. Volunteer students whose native language is Japanese are brought in to work with summer program participants for both language support and authentic interaction in Japanese. Students are encouraged to make the most of various resources available on campuses such as a JSL resource center and the Writing Support Center. Final grades will be given based on quizzes, class participation, and homework/assignments. Students’ self-evaluation of the degree to which they... [-]

(Open to students at all proficiency levels)

Drawing upon our vast experience in combining language and culture in multi-level classes, this course provides an opportunity to experience Japanese culture first hand with Japanese students through activities such as playing traditional musical instruments, calligraphy, cooking, visiting JFOU club activities while improving their Japanese language skills. This course is designed to help students improve their language skills through five to six activities focusing on aspects of Japanese culture and society. Each “experiential activity” consists of three phases: “Preparation,” “Experiential Activity” and “Feedback.” Two to three class meetings will be spent on one activity. Typically, one class meeting is allocated to each of the “Preparation” and “Experiential Activity” phases. The preparation involves learning words and expressions as well as learning or reviewing grammatical items to be used in a particular activity. The “experiential activity” is the actual experience. Volunteer students whose native language is Japanese are brought in to work with summer program participants in these class meetings for both language support and authentic interaction in Japanese. After each activity, students write a short report according to their proficiency level. At the end of the course, students will conduct further research on one of the activities (topics) experienced earlier in the course and write a report in Japanese, which should be accompanied by a portfolio. Depending on the number of students, students will give an oral presentation as well.... [-]
