* gained a GCSE (Grade A/A*) in Japanese
* achieved level A2+ of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) in Japanese
This intermediate level course is equivalent to level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It is for students who wish to develop their oral and written communicative skills to become independent learners and use Japanese for personal enjoyment, study, work, or leisure activities. The language content will enable participants to describe, compare, contrast, and express personal opinions on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. The course will extend the students'knowledge of the culture and contemporary Japanese society.
The class activities will focus on listening, speaking, grammar structures and cultural awareness; and students will be encouraged to practise reading and writing skills in their own time. There will be plenty of opportunities to interact in the target language through class activities, discussions, scenarios and role-plays.
