Advanced Japanese Reading Practice
Prerequisite: A grade of C or higher in Intermediate Japanese II (EAST-UA 250).
This course is designed for students whose levels of Japanese are Advanced I and above. The overall goal of this course is to help students build reading speed, reading fluency, vocabularies, expressions, and writing skills through experiencing the pleasure of reading. Students read self-selected Japanese reading materials and read them independently at their own pace using the extensive reading approach (Day & Bamford, 1998). The focus of the class will be individual reading activity and consultations with the instructor. Additional activities, such as book talk, reading-aloud, presentations, and discussions will be incorporated into the class.
