Comments about Bachelors Degree in Japanese - At the institution - Sioux Falls - South Dakota
The Augustana Japanese Program offers two years of language instruction taught by a native Japanese speaker specializing in language pedagogy. The program focuses on the basic and most important skills needed to communicate and function in Japanese.
Classes are full of activities with chances for every student to enjoy listening to and speaking Japanese. All types of instructional technology are incorporated into classrooms to accelerate students' learning: a language lab, computer programs, word processing, as well as audio and video tapes. The program is designed to provide students with the language skills that can be utilized in real communication.
Students in Japanese take advantage of the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET). They may participate in exchange and foreign language education throughout Japan. Participants may work in local government or public or private schools on the junior high and high school levels as assistant language teachers.
Augustana's Asian Student Organization brings together students for activities such as Asian Night and foreign language conversation tables at the college's Pagoda House.
