Compulsory: 10 credits at Level 1 in Japanese

JAP201 Year 12 Japanese - NCEA L2

This course will consolidate and extend knowledge of Japanese language and culture. The language taught and the thematic foci of this course will allow students to further engage with Japanese speakers on areas beyond their immediate self. Theme material includes: family life, Japanese traditions, eating and drinking, education and recreation. The programme will give students experience in a variety of activities which will call for the integration of all four language skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students will further develop these skills with a continued emphasis on the realistic use of the language.

The internal assessments include the writing standard and either a conversation portfolio or a speech. Reading and Listening skills will be assessed during the external exam period at the end of the year.

Students studying Jap201 will be well set-up for success at Japanese in subsequent years at NCEA L3 and University level.
