Teacher in Charge: Ms C. Fuller
This subject leads on from the Year 9 course with a focus on communication and interaction for real life purposes. Students will be expected to master the katakana script, being able to read and recognise some kanji and consolidate the hiragana script learnt in Year 9. The cultural aspects of Japanese life are introduced wherever possible in the form of project work, DVDs, video clips and Japanese visitors. Students also have the opportunity to host a student from Japan.
