Spoken Japanese 3 is an intermediate Japanese language course which aims to improve the learner’s command of modern spoken Japanese. The focus is on the oral and aural skills needed to understand and participate in general everyday conversations. With the course textbook Yookoso! Continuing with Contemporary Japanese we aim to teach you the listening and oral skills needed to understand and participate in general everyday conversations. The activities in the textbook and accompanying workbook develop through particular themes (Travel, At Home, Transportation & Body and Health) to promote your communicative abilities. The course requires five hours of classes per week: two hours of lectures, two hours of tutorials and one hour of Language Lab.

b) develop better language-learning strategies
c) consolidate grammatical and communicative understanding of introductory Japanese and begin to develop functional skills at an intermediate level.
