Beginning Japanese II
This material was designed at MIT for Japanese beginners and includes various exercises and study materials. This course covers Lessons 7-12A of JSL (Japanese: the Spoken Language, Part 1, by Eleanor H. Jorden with Mari Noda, Yale University Press, 1987), enhancing the basic skills for conversation, reading and writing. The class emphasizes the development of communicative skills (i.e., your actual use of Japanese in context). By the end of this semester, students are expected to carry on a daily conversation with Japanese people.
