10 Japanese

10JAP
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: 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.


Course Overview

The business: Topics such as 'What shall I wear?', 'Where shall we meet?', 'Let's watch rugby!' and 'Did you see them?' are all topics which culminate in real life tasks to complete.
Let's talk about it!: Oral presentation will take place during this semester.


Term 2
The business continues!

Term 3

There are continuing opportunities throughout the year to be involved in field trips, exchanges, and other Japanese activities.

Pathway

Japanese - Level 1

'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.
