METHODS OF LEARNING:
Oral introduction and learning how to recognise the characters of the Hiragana alphabet are major parts of this course. Stories and pictures are used to help students remember these. Language patterns are taught using a variety of games, songs, chants and quizzes. Also, students access online programmes to learn, memorise, play games and test new vocabulary, hiragana and greetings.
WHERE DOES THE SUBJECT LEAD?
Japanese language can be studied at every level from Year 9 to Year 13. From Year 13 students can progress to University or Polytechnics/Ara to continue their Japanese language study. For those with a real interest in Japanese language and culture, there are many opportunities to travel to Japan both while at school and after leaving school. Every two years there is a tour to Japan organised by the school. Students can also apply for AFS Scholarships and self-funding exchange programmes.
