JAPN 2001H - Honors Intermediate Japanese I

Honors Intermediate Japanese I is an enriched version of JAPN 2001. The first of two intermediate language courses presenting the fundamentals of grammar, pronunciation, conversation, reading and writing. Designed to increase proficiency in Japanese skills through study of authentic materials: dialogues, reading, writing exercises, and dictation/pronunciation drills. This course continues familiarizing students with the culture of Japan. Students who completed a third year of high school Japanese with a grade of A may be a candidate to take this course; students may also take a placement test to gain access to JAPN 2001. The Honors course is sometimes taught on an individualized basis or in conjunction with a regular section of JAPN 2001. This honors section is a more intensive course that will build greater development of skills through personalized attention and specialized assignments. For enrollment in Honors classes, students must have a 3.2 college GPA, or incoming freshmen must show a combined 1100+ SAT (or 24+ ACT) and a 3.5+ high school GPA. Students must have completed any LS requirements.

Prerequisite: JAPN 1002 or placement by the Department of Modern & Classical Languages
