 This functions-based course is designed for students who have successfully completed Japanese 1-2.

Reading receives increased attention, although the primary emphasis remains the development of oral-language proficiency. Programmed instruction and technology, under the direction of the Japanese teacher, may be used to facilitate instruction and language practice. The course is not designed for students who are fluent or nearly fluent in Japanese as evidenced by an informal primary language assessment or other language assessments. It is recommended that fluent or nearly fluent students enroll in a higher-level Japanese course if offered.
