Russian and Japanese - University of Manchester

Provides a broad grounding in Russian language, culture and society as well as a firm grounding in the Japanese language along with understandings of Japan in historical, cultural social and global contexts. **Russian** - Studies in Russian will enable students to develop their Russian language skills to a superior level and simultaneously to develop their interests in and knowledge of a variety of other subject areas (such as film and media studies, sociology, history and politics, literary and cultural studies). **Japanese** - Students will be studying Japanese throughout the course. The core language teaching enables students to develop various linguistic skills: speaking and writing accurately; understanding and analysing audio, video and written materials; using different registers; speaking to a group with confidence; and translating with appropriate sensitivity. - Students follow a Japanese Studies curriculum through which they will learn about Japan-related topics in historical, linguistic, cultural, religious and other contexts, drawing on the wide range of research carried out by staff in Japanese Studies. - The course centres around a core framework in year 1 but some choice of modules from year 2 onwards will enable students to focus on particular areas of interest in the study of Japan and East Asia. Applicants should be aware that learning Japanese is very intensive and that a great deal of time is required for this throughout the course (extending through the summer period between years one and two, particularly for beginners). The first few weeks may be particularly intensive for those who have not encountered Japanese script and we strongly advise all applicants to ensure that they have learned at least the hiragana script prior to Week One of teaching; guidance on materials to help with this can be obtained from the language tutors. The degree is awarded as a single class, based on the marks achieved in both languages. **Special Features** - Language courses are team-taught by native speakers of Russian and English-speakers with a superior command of Russian; these courses are supplemented by structured independent language-learning activities. - There are separate language pathways for beginners and post-A level students in the first two years of study. - You will have access to a wide range of Russian cultural and social events that further your study of Russian language and culture outside the classroom. - Japanese Studies at Manchester is taught by a diverse team of academic specialists in the field degree give you the opportunity either to build on existing knowledge of the language (i.e. GCSE-level or AS/A2-level or equivalent), or to study it as a beginner.
