Students continue to develop language competency within the context of culturally rich thematic units. Performance-based activities allow students to speak and write independently in unfamiliar situations. Listening and reading skills are further developed through the use of authentic materials and focus on literal comprehension and inferential interpretation. Students continue to explore the Japanese speaking culture(s) in new contexts, as well as make comparisons and connections to their own experiences. Communication in the classroom (teacher-student and/or student-student) takes place in Japanese.
