The Japanese language program at Belmont offers three years of grammar instruction. With a mixture of grammar-translation method and communicative approach, students learn to develop reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills while having fun! Students learn this highly contextual language by examining the culture and linguistic aspects of history. These are fun-filled classes in which students share laughs and learn together.
Our Japanese language program also offers a unique course in which students practice translating poems and short stories. The students have opportunities to communicate directly with the author herself as they face challenges and questions. If the author is satisfied with the translation work, it will be published with the students’ names as translators.
