About the Course

東京大学の研究内容に基づく科学技術に関する文章を読み、基礎的な日本語の専門語彙や重要な表現の使い方を習得しながら、読解力を向上することができる。また、読解学習にとどまらず、テキスト動画やインタビュー動画を利用し、「聴く」、「話す」、「書く」といった連繫した力を養うことができる。さらに、理工学系の知識を発展的に広げ、深めることができる。 教材は、日本語教育の専門教員が作成したテキストや動画に加え、理系の専門教員にインタビューした動画を含む。それを内容重視アプローチ(content-based learning)を利用し、効率的に学ぶことができる。また、内容重視アプローチは学習者のモチベーションを上げ、中級のレベルではあるが、アカデミックな語彙を含むより高いレベルの語学力を身に付けることができる。 This course focuses on improving Japanese reading comprehension through vocabulary and expressions retention, with a theme of Science and Engineering research at the University of Tokyo. In addition to reading, illustration videos and interview videos allow you to practise "listening" and "writing" skills. You can also broaden and deepen your knowledge in the related areas....

This course is great for anyone who wants to learn about scientific/technological topics through Japanese. It would also be great general practice for someone at JLPT N3/2 level. The course is well structured: each week starts with vocabulary and grammar around a particular topic. Gradually more difficult exercises are introduced over the course of the week culminating in a short interview with a real-life researcher in that topic. I renjoyed every aspect of the course.

I really like how the vocabulary is recycled around the common theme of Science and Technology. The topics were interesting. I like the specialist interviews. I have no comments for how to improve the course. I hope that a continuation of this course for JPLT N2 learners will be available on coursera.

Such an interesting journey! I thought it will be difficult for me as i am not into Science and all much, but it was super relevant and knowledgeable!

Thank you for having this course!

I enjoyed the reading and listening materials about current technologies. It is ideally suited for N3 or above Japanese learners.

The pace of the lessons is just right and appropriate with the level which is intermediate. I enjoyed the course pretty well :)

Good course overall. Not that difficult if you already had level of N3 and can be finished in only one week. For me, it is more like a review. It would be better if the answers or feedbacks be provided. I got 98% in my final exam but I don't know where is my mistake.
