In this introductory level language subject students focus on contemporary spoken and written Japanese. They are provided with the ability to communicate in Japanese in various situations that they can encounter in Australia and Japan and to read and write at an elementary level. Building on the knowledge gained in JPN1001, this unit brings the total number of kanji learnt to approximately 115. This subject will also be offered as an intensive summer subject from week 5 to week 7 in 2015.
