10 Japanese

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Barrett

Japanese at Year 10 scaffolds students towards the senior school. Akonga learn how to describe the world and the decisions they make, such as clothing, interests, and transport. Reading and writing opportunities increase, along with further investigation into traditional and contemporary cultural aspects. The aim is to develop increasingly confident communicators who are curious about exploring all that Japan has to offer.

The business: Topics such as 'What shall I wear?', 'Where shall we meet?', 'Let's watch rugby!' and 'Did you see them?' all culminate in real life tasks.
Let's talk about it!: Oral presentation

Semester B
This is a semester option. This means that it runs over approximately half the school year. The option will run in either the first or second half of the year.

Pathway

'The limits of my language are the limits of my world.'
Apart from dedicated career paths, such as interpreter, teacher, or translator, a language is a useful addition to any future pathway. Marketing, sales, law, medicine, health and lifestyle, and diplomatic careers all benefit from an additional worldview.
