Japanese CEFR A1 > A1/A2 - in person

The Japanese language courses of the University of Groningen Language Centre will introduce students to the Japanese language or build on knowledge and skills already present. The emphasis will be on communication in everyday situations in relation to Japanese culture. In addition, attention will be paid to grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.

Level A1>A1/A2 is for participants who have followed the 0>A1 course or have a similar level. In this course only Japanese characters will be used. This means you must be able to read kana if you are planning to join the A1>A1/A2 course. You do not have to be able to write kanacharacters.

Study load: 12 lessons of 2 hours, in addition a total of around 30 hours of self-study.

Independent study materials
Good independent study materials for learning kana are available online / for smartphones, such as:

  • Kana Mind (for Android)
  • Nihongo no kana (for iOS)
  • or search on Quizlet.com or Memrise.com for ‘hiragana’ or ‘katakana’.

Several Quizlet sets are available to help you learn vocabulary from the textbook.

Language of Instruction
The target language is the language of instruction as much as possible. When necessary, the Japanese course is taught in Dutch or English (depending on the group composition). The course material is in English.

Office Hour
If you want to register and you have not previously taken a Japanese course at the Language Centre, we advise you to visit the office hour to discuss with a teacher which course would suit you best, but this is not mandatory. Please note that you can already register for the course you are interested in. The office hour is held via Blackboard Collaborate.

Office hours only take place in the period before the start of the course. If office hours are scheduled, you can make your appointment here.

Course Material
The course material is not included in the course fee and is not available at the Language Centre.

Using a Rosetta Stone account besides a language course
It is possible to use a Rosetta Stone account for online independent study besides one of our language courses, with the advantage that the account can be used after the course to keep working on your language skills. Please note that a Rosetta Stone account is not compulsory for our language courses and will not be used by the teacher.
