I am studying Bachelor of Arts doing Extended Major in Japanese and minoring in Film & Television Studies.

Positive aspects:
- UQ by far has the best Japanese curriculum across Queensland.
- Has native speaker lecturers with very good academic background who can help you out with your studies
- UQ also has many language learning opportunities, such as language student clubs and UQ Abroad Programs
- The Japanese courses are differentiated into 3 different levels which cover all of your language levels. Starting from Beginner to Advance, in great detail.

Negative Aspects:
- Sometimes classes get too full and you have to move out of the course.
- Sometimes they clash with another Japanese course that you have to take, and you'll end up having to drop one of them.

My advice to future students - Definitely try to be as early as you can for the UQ Sign-on, and don't be shy to ask questions. Not all teachers are perfect but it's even worse when you're too scared to ask questions and end up with no help. If you absolutely don't get along with the teacher, just ask to be moved to another class.

Try to be patient too. Learning language is hard and not easy. Some people may look like they know everything but that's because they also struggle with it. Try to be kind to yourself and let your mind learn it at its own steady pace, if you keep it at a steady pace I'm sure you'll get there one day.

The positive aspects on the course is that I am able to dive in the creative industry as how I always wanted to. Moreover, most of the contents are the ones that I am passionate about.

However, the negative aspect is always about how communications is not, and will never be, precise. Unlike science or math, where every output are all based on quantitative research. But in communications, it is all based on qualitative and presupposition on future trends.

I'd recommend this course to a friend.

This course is a great course for someone who is unsure of what they want to focus on at university as it provides a variety of subject choices and options for majors/minors.

It is also a good preparation course for someone looking to be a teacher as I was.
