Consult your instructor for what counts as official documentation for your absence. If you have an official obligation (e.g., other class meetings, jobs, etc.) before or after class that consistently results in leaving early or coming late, consult your instructor with an appropriate document to explain your condition.

 

The withdrawal deadline is October 14. All students who withdraw from course before or on the day of the withdrawal deadline will automatically receive a grade of “W.”

宿題しゅくだい  Homework:

Homework will be assigned almost daily, and will usually require use of the course packet available for purchase at the campus bookstores. Unless instructed otherwise, homework is due at the beginning of class. Homework will be graded in terms of punctuality, completion, and quality. Refer to the “Grading Policy for Worksheets” section in the packet for details.

 

You are expected to do your homework by yourself (and not with a classmate or with anyone else who may be able to help you with the work). If you copy someone else’s work or get unauthorized assistance from a translation device or from a classmate or a native/ more advanced speaker, it will be considered a violation of the University’s academic honesty policy, and therefore it will be reported to the University.

 

ラボ Lab:

You are required to go to the language lab on the campus of your course to practice listening and speaking skills and for individual consultation with (a) tutor(s). Refer to the course schedule as to timing and frequency of your appointments.

 

クイズ  Quizzes:

We will have frequent in-class quizzes over topics such as vocabulary, kanji, and grammar. Quizzes are generally given at the beginning of class. You will not be given extra time to work on quizzes if you are late, so punctual attendance is important. Your three lowest quiz grades will be dropped before your final grade is calculated.

 

プロジェクト  Project:

The “Project” item in the grade distribution refers to a special project given over the course of the semester. More details will be given at a later date.

 

口頭こうとう試験しけん  Oral Tests:

There will be designated days to assess your oral skills throughout the semester. More details will be given at a later date.

 

レッスンテスト  Lesson Tests:

Besides the final exam, there will be two lesson tests. Lesson tests are cumulative by nature and information from previous lessons will be included. Each test will, however, focus on an individual set of lessons. The first lesson test will cover lessons 13 and 14, and the second one will cover lessons 15 and 16.

 

期末きまつ試験しけん  Final Exam:

We will have a cumulative final exam, covering lessons 17 through 18. The final exam is mandatory for all students.

 

おまけ  Extra Credit:

Extra credit opportunities may be offered at the discretion of your instructor. A maximum 3% of extra credit will be offered throughout the semester.

 

Note:

§  Unless instructed otherwise, any course work to be submitted and graded must be handwritten using a pencil and an eraser. Any work written in pen will not be graded.

§  There are no “make-up” quizzes/tests/exams at a later date for any reason, even with in-advance notices or official documentation, while you may be able to arrange an appointment to take a quiz/test/exam scheduled on the day of your future absence earlier.

§  Graded written tests/exams must be returned to your instructor after your in-class review.


 

講義方法こうぎほうほう  METHODS OF INSTRUCTION

This class will require out-of-class study every day. We will generally approach each lesson as follows:

  1. Quiz
  2. Review of previous lessons (Be ready to ask and answer questions.)
  3. Lecture on new material
  4. Exercise in small groups
  5. Summary and review of the day

Vocabulary and writing (katakana, hiragana and kanji) should be practiced daily outside of class. It is important to pay attention and ASK QUESTIONS in class when you do not understand for your sake and for the sake of others.
