Introduction to Reading Japanese

This course is designed to introduce students to the vocabulary, structure and patterns of Japanese texts. Students will be introduced to the use of general and specialised dictionaries for the study of Japanese, as well as other resources. Students will prepare the text for each class, and we will discuss grammatical and vocabulary issues as they arise. We will read a variety of texts (doctrinal, sociological, popular medica, etc.). The choice of materials will be determined by student interests.
