close Course Overview

Objectives and aims of the course

By listening to the Japanese spoken in various different situations students will improve their understanding of "natural conversation". Students will be able to guess the meaning even if three are unknown words and phrases by learning contracted forms, sound changes and difficult expressions needed for the conversations.

*Although the lecture is offered only in Japanese, it is an excellent lecture worthy of being introduced in English.
