Summer Session in Japanese Language and Culture

The Summer Session in Japanese Language and Culture was introduced in 2013. The six weeks session is tailored for students who want to improve their Japanese language abilities in an intensive program in Japan. Students will study Japanese at the beginner, intermediate, advanced intermediate, and advanced level in an international environment at Sophia University, located in the center of Tokyo. Class size will be small, with around 15 students. To further enhance the effectiveness of Japanese language acquisition, students will have opportunities to practice their language skills with native Japanese students from Sophia University through our “Language Exchange Program”.Alongside the Japanese language courses, a lecture series, “Japanese Studies,” will provide the students with insights into Japanese culture, society, and history.

The 2nd application period will open on Feb. 6th through Feb. 17th, 2015.
