授業の目的、概要等  
Just like any other language, the Japanese language has its own unique characteristics. However, as native speakers there is a tendency not to notice the uniqueness. When posed with questions from Japanese learners, it is often challenging to explain certain concepts and rules. Analyzing the Japanese from a linguistic perspective gives native speakers a deeper understanding. This course aims to provide students with an objective perspective and knowledge of the Japanese language. A typical class includes introduction questions/discussion and lectures on the target topic. The class will be held in English and students will be encouraged to discuss in English. Therefore students are expected to have adequate competence in English.
