Aims/Description: The module consolidates the skills acquired up to EAS6126. It is aimed to train students to apply their knowledge in more practical and realistic situations. Further necessary grammatical constructions, a broader range of vocabulary and a further 120 kanji are introduced. The principles underlying the structure of kanji will be confirmed and students will practice how to use a kanji dictionary, thus enabling greater independent study. Students will further develop their oral competence through role playing, speeches, presentations and discussion activities, focusing on clear and appropriate communication.
