Japanese level 2
The course Japanese level 2 is intended for students who already have a basic knowledge of the Japanese language. You should already know the simplest and most important elements of Hiragana and Katakana, and be able to use basic grammar.
During Japanese level 2, you will develop your reading and writing skills, broaden your vocabulary by learning more verbs and adjectives, and learn essential grammar. Combined, these skills will give you the ability and confidence to respond to different situations, for example by expressing your feelings using simple structures or by giving your opinion about familiar topics.
After successfully completing this course, you will know approximately 330 Japanese words and 60 Kanji characters. The end level of this course is equivalent to half of level N5 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).
