The purpose of this course is to prepare students to, on the one hand, conduct research using Japanese materials and, on the other hand, for the work environment through practical training in writing, communicating and giving spoken presentations in Japanese. In addition, the course aims to provide some 'authentic,' real-life experience in using Japanese, and to build community links, through engagement with the Japanese Community/Community of Practice and Learning Community.
