Workload:
2 Tests
1 Reading assignment
1 Group Presentation

Most of the lectures are fun and interactive. You can learn interesting Japanese cultures like tea, flowers and kimono. However, the male guest lecturer Dr Wang, did not prepare well and taught many confusing concept. But generally, its a great course for ppl that are keen on learning some Japanese customs!

無日文底,但對日本文化有興趣就揀左呢個course。有3堂tutorial可以去ac2茶室,幾好玩。

呢個course有兩個tests,一個group presentation,一篇reading assignment。雖然話係B1,但程度同workload絕對屬於B2......

Tests係mc,但一題佔4-6分,要睇晒佢俾既全部readings先會識做,如果無記入面d details一定唔會高分。Group presentation佢俾得幾鬆手。Reading assignment淨係睇reading然後寫500字,我無direct quote到篇文既內容,結果C左,有個同學內容同我大同小異,但有quote就攞左A......所以記得一定要direct quote,否則慘死!

Tutor方面Melody幾好人,ppt整得好清晰同有心機,教得幾好。另外兩個就講得悶左d,尤其prof Gabrakova d ppt無圖,淨係得d好虛既keywords,會幾難理解吓。

同學方面應該有一部分人識日文,甚至係讀AIS/ minor Japanese Studies,佢地上堂幾踴躍俾反應同答問題。不過就算無日文底但對日本文化有興趣,只要夠勤力都可以一試。

In this course, there are three tutorial sections for students to visit tea room and learn some tea ceremony manners. During the lecture time, there is also demonstration of flower arrangement and kimono. Sometime the lectures might be slightly boring, depends on which lecturer, as there are three lecturers teaching the course. But generally it is still an interesting course.

The workload is not very heavy, there are one individual assignment (writing a 300 words essay), one group project (presentation only) and two MC quizzes. The group project might need some effort in order to get a high mark. For the MC quizzes, I personally think they are not that difficult, as long as you have revised for the powerpoint notes, coursepack reading, and pay attention during lesson time, you will be able to get a good mark.

I will recommend this course to those who wish to learn more about Japanese culture. Even though you don’t know any Japanese language, you still able to survive the course.

很推薦對日本文化有興趣既人take這個GE,雖然大部分日文原文都有英文翻譯,但本身懂得日文會對理解上有好大幫助。tutorial 可以去茶室體驗一下成個tea ceremony,自己make tea,所以幾有趣。lecture有D悶,assignment workload唔大,group project只需要present,唔使寫written report。Quiz有少少難,一定要溫course pack,因為lecture note未必有提過。

幾有趣的科目, 可以去茶室體驗, 其中一堂有人表演插花, 著和服
對日本文化感興趣的同學可以考慮這一科
有兩份asg,但字數不多, 題目亦不算難
有兩個test,第一個較難, 真的需要溫readings, 第二個則容易
有一個present,遇到freerider, 但結果都ok, prof很用心俾意見

本課的內容很豐富,但不同lecturer的風格都很不同,有几堂lecture可能會悶。
但總體來說十分有趣,體驗活動也多。
至於兩次考試,ppt是主要的來源,但僅僅看ppt恐怕沒法完全應付。
coursepack中reading固然很多,若能一一看完消化,考試不會有問題。
記憶力很重要。
按照標準來說工作量不算大,算上reading就會很花時間了。

有日文底讀呢科既話
d野係會易記少少
但最緊要都係要溫書

GE黎講 呢科都幾好玩
有得去茶室
又有堂lecture係示範插花同著和服
lecture內容我覺得又幾有趣

開頭果堂都正正常常,吹下水咁,同大部分時間都係講英文.
但之後d 堂有時係到講日文,我一d 都唔識,都唔知佢講o麥,連notes都係有好多日文terms,要自己查.
好多Notes, Tests d MC 好深,最慘係好多free riders
冇走過堂,聽足書,都係得C+, 唉,唔想再讀CTL開既GE...

開頭D Lecture內容幾有趣,當故仔聽學下野。Tutorial去茶道房飲茶食餅,幾好玩。
雖然話係英文教,但D notes入面既terms全部都係英文拼音既日文或者根本日文,溫書會好辛苦,我冇日文底所以後尾連睇都費事,走晒所有lecture。
D test我連題目都睇唔明,亂做之後交卷。最尾Project勁hea勁易,求其present到D野就OK。

讀呢科最好有少少日文同日本文化底

course pack有幾多文章同note睇,建議上堂前要睇睇

考試分為兩次MC先難後淺,記住睇note之外都要睇下course pack!

其餘既功課同present都非常簡單~

最好玩係有得去AC2個茶室度體驗茶道

鐘意日本文化既同學仔可以試下呢個course

可能呢個course係第一次開班既關係,課程內容同教學模式有d混亂,2個tests難易度飄忽,不過勝在學到野,參與茶會最吸引!!啱晒鍾意日本傳統文化既同學~

1. 課程內容&教學模式
呢一科涉及範疇極廣,唔係淨係講飲茶咁簡單,係連茶碗款式,茶道歷史既重要人物等等都要識..雖然分做四個範疇由四個導師去教,但幾位之間無乜協調性,部份內容重覆,整體教得幾悶,難以掌握會考既重點..有位教書成日自high講到off topic,又成日講日文,上堂似教日文多d=_=...唔識日文既同學會比較難理解,不過test又唔會要求寫日文,所以都唔洗太擔心~(個人覺得呢科應該用廣東話教,因為用外語去學另一外國文化有d難度,好多時都唔明講乜...)

2. 工作量
2個tests,1個group presentation,2篇short reading assignments,唔take lecture attendance(不過唔上你會唔識~_~),in-class 只計tutorial(好少,得3,4次)加1次talk
2個tests,一個好難一個好易,mc+fill in the blanks
group presentation題目自定,好harsh咁只限10分鐘(4-5人一組),比分有d嚴...

3. 特色-多體驗活動~正!!
tutorial o係茶室上,呢間「友香庵」係本港首間設於大學校園既茶室,入面幾乎跟足真正傳統茶室起既,平時一般學生唔入得,淨係報呢科既學生上堂時或學校搞茶會時先入得~學校為我地請黎裏千家茶道協會既人(大部份係日本人)示範沖茶,學生可以學習茶會既禮儀,例如走路同敬禮姿勢,品茶手勢等等,又有得飲下茶,食下和菓子,o係香港真係好難得有咁既機會!!
上lecture時亦有機會睇花道同和服穿著示範,課外又請黎茶道大師講talk,非常特別!!

我諗呢科第一次開班係混亂d,下次應該會改善下,整體黎講,都係幾有趣既GE course黎既^^!

A good choice for those who are good at memorising.
Doesn't really matter whether you know the language.

dropped this course becoz from the 1 st lecture you might realise that you will be a loser if you don't know any Japanese language, the culture and the characteristics of Japanese people, you will feel alienated becoz most ppl around you jot notes in jap and they understand the Jap jokes . the tutor spoke in fluent english and japanese explaining the terms (already difficult to understand in chinese, now is explained in english) workload is acceptable if u really like the cultural stuff, but i was quite disappointed by the teaching style (a biased one)
