The teacher will also introduce Japanese culture through photos and videos.

The number of spaces is limited.

These courses are for those who have some previous Japanese learning experience: students whose knowledge comes from self-study, private instruction or study at institutions other than Montreal Japanese Language Center.

SEIJIN 2:    This course is for those who have already mastered Hiragana and Katakana. The student will learn the kanjis relevant for each lesson. The main objective is to be able to communicate using Japanese in real situations such as family life, season and weather, work, the city, a picnic, health matters, a celebration, etc.

SEIJIN 3:     This course is for those who have acquired a good foundation of spoken Japanese. The student will learn the kanjis relevant for each lesson and improve their oral comprehension. The objective is to be able to exchange opinions with classmates and give advice in Japanese on various subjects such as the origin of the first name, recommended restaurants, travel tips, Japanese and foreign festivals.

SEIJIN 4:    This course is for those who can speak Japanese. The goal is to be able to discuss food from Japan and foreign countries, job search, opinions about marriage, finding accommodation, travel problems, etc. New activities are proposed such as making public speeches, reading e-mails and blogs, and writing essays.

SEIJIN 5:    The student will develop the following five skills: oral comprehension, conversation, speech, written comprehension, as well as writing. The aim is to become able to take part in more complex communication, such as giving information about recent news, giving health advice, and talking about your country’s traditional arts and history.
