Learners are expected to have had approximately 80 hours of previous study: 40 hours’ contact time and 40 hours’ personal study. In addition, knowledge of Hiragana (reading & writing) is required, and knowledge of Katakana is desirable. Learners are expected to have covered “Japanese for Busy People I” L1-14, or equivalent.
