Year 13 Japanese

Welcome to year 13 Japanese at EGGS!

Japan is known for its cultural influence on the world. From food, to anime and manga, to traditional clothing and decoration, Japan’s culture is unique and beautiful. Speaking Japanese opens the door to experiencing this new world of culture, history and tradition.

As NZ’s 4th largest trading partner, there are many opportunities for Kiwis to use Japanese both in Japan and at home.

In this course, you will study towards 21 credits at NCEA L3. The course will have a ‘world matters’ focus, where we further develop our ability to communicate clearly and in depth. You will learn to express and react to the ideas and opinions of others. We will cover topics such as:
