About the subject

The Stage 2 Japanese Continuers course is the continuation of the Stage 1 Japanese Continuers course. In this subject students interact with others to share information, ideas, opinions and experiences. They create texts in the language to express information, feelings, ideas and opinions. They analyse texts to interpret meaning, and examine relationships between language, culture and identity, and reflect on the ways in which culture influences communication.

Stage 2 Japanese at continuers level consists of three themes and a number of prescribed topics and suggested subtopics. Themes:

  • The Individual
  • The Japanese speaking Communities
  • The Changing World
