Event description

Description

An intensive programme over 2 weeks which serves as the bridge between beginners and advanced Japanese. Taught by a senior native instructor in a class of 4 maximum, this course covers our 3.1 - 3.3 courses with additional listening and speaking practice.

During the first session, students will learn how to state substantive opinions, explain procedures, ask about something one doesn’t understand, talk about changes in everyday life, state impressions, and learn 40 new kanji. By the end of the session, students will be able to express suppositions (でしょう、だろう), impressions (よう、みたい、そう), certainty (はず), purposes (ように), decisions (ことになる、こどにする), beliefs or expectations (らしい), ideas that run contrary to expectation (のに), and causes or reasons for situations or outcomes (ために); to describe actions done or to be done in preparation (ておく), changes (よになる、ていく), and simultaneous actions (ながら).

During the second session students will learn how to relate news and significant events, ask for reasons or explanations, express gratitude in a thoroughly expressive manner, explain reasons and circumstances, talk about troubles and difficulties, and ask for permission or help. They will also practise talking about the global weather issues and environmental problems, education and career, learning 50 new kanji. By the end of the session students will be able to describe actions of giving and receiving (てもらう、てくれるあげる), to express intention (もり), also to use passive structure (れる、られる), and causative and causative-passive structures (せる、させる).

During the third session, students will learn how to introduce people, express gratitude and apologies in a personal and expressive manner, leave messages, give commands, and make complaints. They will also learn how to make formal and casual invitations and how to express modesty in formal ways. Students will learn 60 new kanji and will be able to make several key expressions and basic patterns of honorific (いらっしゃる、お~になる、お~する、ていただく、てくださる、てさしあげる); to use plain imperatives: don and don't (~行け); to explain reasons (からだ). By the of our Complete Intermediate Programme, students will be at JLPT N3 level or above upon completion of the course.
