This course helps students develop and expand their knowledge base in Japanese by covering aspects of daily life, Japanese culture, and more advanced vocabulary and grammar concepts. Students will discover an increased ability to communicate as their vocabulary and grammar knowledge increase. This course also features interactive elements: live one-on-one speaking appointments, a student discussion board, and an instructor-hosted wiki. This is the fourth course in a four-part Japanese series (JAPAN 041, 043, 051, and 053) and is a continuation of Second-Year Japanese, Part 1 (JAPAN 051).
