Japanese Language Courses

The Center for Japanese Language Education is tasked with enhancing the proficiency of international students in the Japanese language in an integrated manner. To cultivate linguistic skills that are tailored to their individual objectives, it provides a comprehensive program with three key goals: acquiring essential Japanese language skills; mastering the communication strategies required to navigate a diverse society; and understanding the unique aspects of Japan's culture and environment. The Japanese language education offers three types of courses (skills-based, basic, and special) to meet the needs of international students with different learning objectives. In addition, international students and Japanese students may take courses such as "Multicultural Coexistence and Co-Dynamics/Multicultural Conviviality A," "Japanese Culture and Circumstances," "Cross-Cultural Studies B," and "Cross-Cultural Studies E," that provide a setting for study in which international students and Japanese students learn from each other on an equal footing.
