Reviews and tips for JAPN10001

I absolutely loved learning Japanese!! However, I suspect this subject would be quite difficult for anyone starting with zero prior Japanese study. It moves very fast but I highly recommend it if you have done some prior work in Japanese; even just learning Hiragana and Katakana in the break before starting.

Fun subject, lecturer is very open and fluent in English. As long as you put in enough effort to keep up with materials, getting an H1 should be fairly easy. Furthermore, picking up a new language is always good for your resume.

The lecturers and tutors are really encouraging. The materials were interesting and you get a taste of how education different the teaching style is like compared to other subjects!

Fun subject but tutors are a mixed bag and class sizes are so big that you won't get personalised attention or feedback, which isn't great for language learning.

Great subject for beginners in Japanese. The lectures were quite dry and not required. The lecturer often diverges from the topics and goes overtime, rushing the essential grammar points in the last 5-10 minutes. Unless you want to learn about the Japanese customs, traditions, myths and history, I would not recommend attending the lectures and just listening to recordings and skipping over the nonessential parts. The seminars were the highlight of the subject for me. The teachers were friendly and very helpful, although the classes were very large and the classrooms uncomfortably small. Mostly a self-learning subject, only requires reading the textbook, learning the vocabulary, and completing exercises in the textbook and workbook. Solutions are provided. The lecture notes do not contain new content and only integrate the material, however no english counterpart is provided in the lecture notes or explained by the lecturer (It often becomes time consuming to translate foreign vocabulary). The writing assessments were decent, as long as you keep up with the content. The oral assessments were pair and solo, respectively. And it is difficult to receive decent marks (even though it is a beginner's subject). Again, it is a great subject for beginners, but could be significantly improved.
