Part 2 continues to teach you to be able to understand Japanese in everyday and work settings. Constantly putting into practice your learnings and aiming to provide more detail and context when speaking and writing.
You’ll start to be able to discuss topics more logically and explain yourself to others with more accuracy. Alongside this, you will begin to read novels and be able to grasp the main story line as well as the generic portrayal of the characters.
As you would expect from such a high-level course, you will be required to study independently outside of the virtual classroom where you will discuss what you have watched, read and written.
You will continue to work on your writing skills, learning an additional 100 kanji and practice on traditional manuscript paper. There will be the opportunity to use apps such as ‘Anki’ and ‘Quizlet’ to support your learning, as well as paper cards to help memorise Kanji.
At the end of the module, you’ll have an opportunity to sit a mock test, based on the JPLT N1 test. This will help you to decide whether to consolidate the same level or move up to the next class.
Who is it for?
To keep up in class you should have reached good JLPT N2 level – around 320 hours of formal learning and some independent study. You could have recently finished part 1 of our advanced course, or similar. More can be found in the eligibility section.
