This course represents the next level above the Japanese Elementary CourseⅠ. It is designed to help learners proficient in basic everyday conversational Japanese to expand their range of communication by introducing them to expressions used in typical interactions with coworkers and to simple exchanges that take place in business settings.

Since learners build up their knowledge of early intermediate patterns, words, and expressions while reviewing elementary fundamentals, they become able to discuss slightly complex topics and resolve issues in Japanese, even in situations involving multiple exchanges.
