Japanese C advances students’ understanding of verb conjugations across different tenses and introduces them to expressing past experiences and future plans. The course also aims to familiarize students with at least 50 Kanji characters, enhancing their reading and writing capabilities in Japanese.

Each course in this series (Japanese A, B and C) is meticulously designed to build upon the previous one, ensuring a gradual and thorough acquisition of the Japanese language tailored to the needs and progression of the learners.

Objectives: Learn and use verb tenses to describe past actions and future plans. Expand vocabulary and understanding of grammatical structures. Recognize and use at least 50 Kanji characters in context.

Key Topics: - Advanced verb conjugations including past and future tenses. - Expressions for discussing past experiences and future intentions. - Introduction to Kanji: reading, writing, and context usage.

Outcome: By the end of Japanese C, students will be able to converse more fluidly about their experiences and future plans in Japanese, understand basic narratives, and recognize a foundational set of Kanji characters, significantly boosting their reading and writing skills.

Please note there will be no teaching session on 05/05/25 or 26/05/25.

Entry criteria
Completion of Japanese B or equivalent knowledge.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2024 prior to starting the course.

Fee information
A text book is used to accompany the course but it is optional to buy this (average cost £20 - £25). The text book will support your learning for at least 1 year. You may also like to buy a small dictionary. Your tutor will be able to advise you at the first session.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
