Japanese 497A: Readings in Modern Japanese I


Greetings from the Library!

I created this guide for the students enrolled in Japanese 497: Readings in Modern Japanese class.

Readings in Japanese from a variety of contemporary sources, including short fiction, plays, newspapers, magazines and electronic media. This course will focus on readings for comprehension with attention to the acquisition of greater kanji and vocabulary recognition skills, mastery of grammatical structures of written Japanese, and the development of familiarity with Japanese cultural concepts.
