Course Description

Level 2 introduces new grammar structures and focuses on how to express topics relevant to daily life, such as inviting someone to do something together, asking favours of people (imperative form), asking for permission, and so on. The course also introduces cultural aspects in order to understand the background of the language and people.

Some of the topics covered are:

  • Giving and receiving things
  • Invitations, suggestions, requests, giving and asking permission, etc.
  • Giving and receiving directions
  • Travelling
  • Skills and preferences.

On completion, you will be able to:

  • Say what you are doing and where you are working
  • Invite people to do things together
  • Find the way to where you want to go
  • Tell people what you would like to do
  • Make requests in a hotel, restaurant, taxi, etc.
  • Talk about your skills and interests

This course assumes that learners have previous basic knowledge of the language, such as verbs (-masu form) and their conjugation with appropriate particles, and adjective conjugation. Learners are expected to have had approximately 80 hours of previous study: 40 hours’ contact time and 40 hours’ personal study. You will have covered “Japanese for Busy People I” L1-14 or equivalent.
