The Year 10 Japanese course builds on content covered in Year 9. This year students will learn to read and write katakana. They will continue to build confidence in using hiragana. Students will also build their knowledge of vocabulary and sentence patterns to complete Levels 3 and 4 of the National Japanese Curriculum.
Students will be developing all four language skills; reading, writing, listening and speaking. They will also be learning about Japanese culture in relation to the topics covered during the year. The topics are:
• Describing People
• Daily Routine
• Food and Drink
• My Town
By the end of this course students will have been introduced to most of the topics in NCEA Level One. Students who have a good grasp of hiragana should enjoy this course.
