Learning objectives
The course aims to provide some of the basic knowledge and skills of the Written and Spoken Japanese language. It is aimed at students who have never studied Japanese. In particular, the goal is to get students to know:
· hiragana and katakana syllabaries;
· about 170 ideographic characters (kanji);
· reading all the words that appear in Units 1-19 of the textbook Minna no Nihongo I Honsatsu;
· the basic grammatical rules and the most important main expressions for communication, contained in the first 19 units of the textbook Minna no Nihongo I Honsatsu.
Students will learn the lexical and morphological elements of the basic constructions and expressions of the Japanese language, and the principles of their composition. In addition, the course will teach to recognize such constructions in written and spoken texts, and to establish their relationship with speech and situation. Students will learn to evaluate which constructions are most appropriate to the various communication situations and to use them to express themselves orally and in writing.
Expected learning outcomes
Recognition, understanding and correct use in simple communicative situations of grammar, vocabulary and basic constructions of the Japanese language in communication situations of medium complexity.The level reached is around N5 on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) scale, and corresponds approximately to the CEFR A1 level.
