Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course will continue right where Japanese Communication [Kommunikation auf Japanisch] finished, covering more basic grammar, vocabulary, and oral exercises. It is meant to be taken in tandem with Japanese Grammar II [Japanische Grammatik II] and Japanese Writing Systems.

Together, these provide students with basic skills in the Japanese language as well as the tools to build on those skills on their own. At the end of the second semester students should be able to
* communicate orally in various everyday situations
* understand basic spoken and written Japanese texts [the latter will require extensive use of dictionaries], including business- or economics-related ones aimed at a general audience
* read a few hundred of the most common kanji
* produce select kinds of written communication [with the help of a computer], e. g. e-mails
* expand on their knowledge of Japanese in self-study, using dictionaries, grammar references etc.

The course will also cover everything required to pass the language part of the StEOP exam for Japanese Studies majors, enabling students to take more advanced language courses, if they wish to specialise further [some German required].

Business Japanese will continue to focus on constructively building an understanding of Japanese grammar and vocabulary by way of oral exercises and listening comprehension providing a base for the other two courses to build upon.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

This course uses continuous assessment (hat immanenten Prüfungscharakter), consequently active participation throughout the semester (both in class and outside) heavily influences the grade. Aside from being prepared for class, volunteering for answering and asking questions etc. there will be regular homework -- to be submitted on time. There will also be more comprehensive written mini-tests and the written final exam as well as one oral test.

No materials or aids are permitted during tests (suitable exceptions can be made on request for students with a handicap).

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The course total is made up of the Final test (40%), Mini-Tests (20%), homework (15%), small essays (15%), speaking test (5%) and active participation in the online classes (5%) and converted to a grade as follows:

> 90 % Excellent (A) [Sehr Gut (1)]
> 80 % Good (B) [Gut (2)]
> 70 % Satisfactory (C) [Befriedigend (3)]
> 60 % Acceptable (D) [Genügend (4)]
<= 60 %: Failed (F) [Nicht Genügend (5)]

* Attendance is mandatory. No-shows for the first unit will have their registration revoked immediately; missing more than 80 % of the total lesson time results in a failing grade. Tardiness may be counted as absence at the discretion of the lecturer. If you should not be able to attend the first lesson please contact the teacher per email, you will be considered as excused and not automatically deregistered.

* There is a zero-tolerance policy on cheating and plagiarism.


Everything covered, in class and/or on the e-learning platform (Moodle).
