This course focuses on the teaching of Japanese to English-speaking learners from the viewpoint of the linguistic and sociocultural content of Japanese language courses. The broad areas of sound, writing, grammar, vocabulary and discourse are surveyed from this perspective, with detailed consideration of specific topics and analysis of learner errors.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate knowledge of Japanese linguistic structures in the context of Japanese teaching and education.
- Demonstrate a high level of expertise in using appropriate reference grammars.
- Read and evaluate Japanese texts related to teaching Japanese as a second language.
- Present views individually and in groups in clear and precise terms in both spoken and written Japanese.
- Demonstrate an understanding of a variety of socio-cultural issues relevant to Japanese language teaching and learning.
A large portion of the course is adopted from research outcomes as well as the teaching experience of the course convenor, whose research interests are in Japanese language teaching methodology and Japanese language studies including grammar, spoken conversation and sociocultural linguistics in Japanese.

The Australian National University commits to embedding the values of academic integrity in our teaching and learning. We ensure that all members of our community understand how to engage in academic work in ways that are consistent with, and actively support academic integrity.
