Japanese 3 continues to build upon the framework established in the first two years of study, as students work with more sophisticated grammar, verb forms, and more elaborate vocabulary and idiomatic expressions. The ultimate goal of this course is to continue to emphasize conversation with the hopes that students will not only improve their language skills but also become able to communicate with native speakers. At the honors level, students will be asked to express themselves in a variety of forms, both written and spoken, as they continue to improve their language proficiency at the ACTFL Intermediate-Low level for Japanese 3 and Intermediate-Mid for Japanese 3H. The Japanese 3 students are to add about 120 kanji while Japanese 3 Honors students add about 200 kanji to what they have mastered in the previous year.
