What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content
The Basic Japanese 1, Part A, is a continuation of JAPAN131. This paper introduces the basic communication skills. All four language skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening will be practised through the medium of modern Japanese grammar, vocabulary and writing system of hiragana and katakana. About 70 new kanji characters will be introduced (students will acquire a total of 101 kanji continued from JAPAN131). In Japanese classes, emphasis will be placed on developing students’ communication skills in both receptive (listening and reading) and productive (speaking and writing) skills of Japanese in order to build a competent and confident foundation at the beginner level.
