Levels 1 and 2

Achievement Objectives and Examples

At these levels, students can understand and use familiar expressions and everyday vocabulary. They can interact in a simple way in supported situations.

Communication at these levels means that, in selected linguistic and sociocultural contexts, students will:

  • receive and produce information;
  • produce and respond to questions and requests;
  • show social awareness when interacting with others.

Language Knowledge and Cultural Knowledge at these levels means that, in selected linguistic and sociocultural contexts, students will:

  • recognise that Japanese is organised in particular ways;
  • make connections with their own language(s);
  • recognise that Japanese cultures are organised in particular ways;
  • make connections with known culture(s).

How to integrate the strands:

  • By introducing and using script from the outset;
  • By integrating language and culture from the beginning;
  • By using Japanese for genuine social interaction;
  • By providing a variety of opportunities for listening, speaking and presenting and performing Japanese;
  • By viewing, reading, and producing Japanese script in supported situations;
  • By creating a supportive environment in which students can take risks;
  • By encouraging students to use Japanese, focusing on communication with the understanding that accuracy will develop as students gain confidence.
