Benefits of learning Japanese?
Speaking a foreign language improves the functionality of your brain by challenging it to recognise, negotiate meaning, and communicate in different language systems. As a result of higher cognitive skills, studies show that the benefits of learning a new language include higher scores on standardized exams in math, reading comprehension and vocabulary by multilingual students compared to the scores of monolingual students.
According to Eton Institute’s Language Development in the Workforce survey, 89% of clients stated that multilingual employees add value to the workforce and 88% stated that recruiting team members with language skills is important to their organization. A multilingual ability is definitely a competitive edge in today’s world.
The focus for Year 9 Japanese will be a quick revision of Year 9, then topics on Japanese Home, Daily life, Shopping, Your Town, Holidays, Hiragana & Katakana, and Japanese Culture.
Year 9 Japanese is recommended. Otherwise, permission required from Teacher in Charge of Japanese.
