Japanese
Today there is an increasing demand for Japanese speakers and the course provides a sound basis for developing the necessary communication skills. In addition, Japanese is fascinating in its own right, very different from European languages, yet in some ways not as difficult as most people imagine.

This is a rare and good opportunity to have an insight into Japanese culture. Although reading and writing Japanese (Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji - Chinese characters) may sound impossible, you will be amazed how interesting they are and should enjoy exploring the language.

Having a qualification in Japanese will certainly make your future university or job application stand out from the rest!

Japanese was introduced at Barton Peveril College over ten years ago, leading to a nationally recognised qualification in Japanese. Many students continue for a second year to GCSE. Many have chosen to include Japanese as part of their University course.

What Will I Learn On This Course?

The one year course is varied, making use of authentic materials, recordings and videos to supplement the 'vocabulary and grammar structure' booklets.

At the end of the course you will:
* be equipped with sufficient confidence to communicate in simple language with a native speaker
* develop knowledge of the culture of Japan at a basic contextual level
* be able to read and write Hiragana and Katakana and some Kanji.

Course Content And Method Of Assessment

ASSET Language is built around a flexible combination of teacher assessments and external assessments, offering classroom-based 'assessment for learning' and demand-led external assessments throughout the year.
