Shibuya Scramble Crossing: Developing Listening Skill Through TV Drama

This course is designed to further advance high intermediate Japanese learners' listening skill and to improve their vocabulary, sentence patterns and expressions as well as deepen their understanding of Japanese culture. Students explore contemporary Japanese usage and culture through Japanese TV dramas including animations and everyday listening materials. Although the focus is on listening, exposure to authentic Japanese materials will enhance students' communicative competence in their four language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing).

Prerequisites: JAPN 311 with a minimum course grade of C- or equivalent.
