Teaching and learning
Cambridge IGCSE First Language Japanese is designed for learners whose first language is Japanese. This First Language syllabus develops learners' ability to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively. They learn how to employ a wide-ranging vocabulary, use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation, and develop a personal style and an awareness of the audience being addressed.
Learners are also encouraged to read widely, both for their own enjoyment and in order to develop an appreciation of how writers achieve their effects. The syllabus also complements other areas of study by encouraging skills of more general application.
We are withdrawing Cambridge IGCSE Japanese – First Language (0507). The last examination for this subject will be June 2018. We communicated this decision to schools in September 2015.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
There are no updates for this syllabus
