This subject is designed to provide students considerable opportunities to engage with Japanese culture, language and people. Students will examine the socio-cultural context in which the language is used under globalisation. It questions what constitutes Japanese language and culture and what it means to speak in Japanese with people of different cultural background in a transcultural environment where cultural and linguistic diversity and mobility are prominent across borders. Students are required to read or otherwise prepare extensively in preparation for classroom presentations, discussions and debates.
