The course aims to provide a systematic treatment of modern Japanese grammar and vocabulary for intermediate students of the language. It examines various grammatical items and interrelations between Japanese words. It will therefore help students in their acquisition of Japanese language skills. Lectures will be supplemented by regular exercises, with the objective of consolidating and extending students' knowledge of Japanese grammar and vocabulary/expressions. Some theoretical aspects of the language will also be discussed.
