After brief explanation of the grammar points by the instructor, students will practice new expressions through a variety of communicative activities.

During that activities, you will review your grammar and vocabulary and also expand your grammar and vocabulary for the expressions.
Students will be expected to actively participate in various class activities such as pair / group work where they use Japanese
with other members of the class as well as the instructor. Most of the class is conducted in Japanese.
