Course Outline

Long-term study abroad courses are suitable for learners who aim for higher education or a career in Japanese. The course starts at an elementary level, with a focus on speaking, listening, reading and writing, and continues on to an advanced level. Students are able to enroll in April, July, October and January. The length of study periods depends on admission periods. Classes are adapted to suit the needs of the students and cover topics including preparation for the JLPT (Often a requirement for Japanese Universities and College).
