Your participation in class is absolutely necessary and very important to learn the language.
Students who are tardy will receive half credit, and students who are absent will receive no credit
each hour. Your in-class performance will be evaluated and weighs 10% of your grades (this
includes calling on students in class and pop quizzes).
Weekly quizzes will cover the materials from the lecture and sections of the week. . There will
also be Kanji Quiz, covering Kanji introduced in lecture. Both weekly quizzes and Kanji quizzes
are given in lectures (see the schedule). You are NOT allowed to attend a different section to take
the quiz. Unscheduled vocabulary quizzes (you TA will announce when vocabulary quizzes will
be given).
Exam Ch.4-5:
This will include grammar/ vocab / kanji/ reading/ listening.
No make-up exam will be administerd. The only exception is for pre-arranged make-up due to
participation in official university business and for serious illness. (Documentation will be
required for both cases.)
Final Exam:
Final Exam will be given on Saturday 3/13 from_8:30am, and cover Ch.4-6. Location will be
announced later. The date is different from the scheduled exam date. Please make sure that your
personal schedule is adjusted, since no make-up final will be administered before or after this
date. If you have another exam scheduled to overlap with our final, you must inform the lecturer
by the end of Week 2 to make arrangements. No exceptions will be made.
Make-up Exam policy:
*No make-ups will be given for quizzes and exams. The policy of dropping the lowest quiz
grade permits flexibility and accommodates minor illnesses and personal business. The only
exceptions are for pre-arranged make-ups due to participation in official university business and
serious illness (documentation will be required), not for personal travel or social engagements.
There will be an oral interview at the end of the quarter. During the interview, you will work in
pair, meet with your instructor to answer questions, conduct a skit in Japanese and you will be
asked to give an one-minute speech. In order to prepare for the one-minute speech, you will be
required to make oral recording on given subjects (see scheduled). Details for each oral essay will
be announced in class.
Homework will be assigned daily and collected in quiz section (MWF). Turn in homework before
each class starts. Do not forget to staple if you have more than one page, and have your name and
section on the top of the first page. Homework will receive half credit if late but turned in on the
due date. Three types of homework are assigned:
iv • Workbook/lab manual: Answers must be checked using the answer key prior to submitting
homework—this is a part of the assignment. Use your own paper to do the exercises.
