Sophia University Summer Session in Japanese Language (Japanese University Program)

Starting in June 2013, Sophia University will organize a new, intensive program: the Summer Session in Japanese Language. The six-week summer session will address students who want to improve their Japanese language abilities in an intensive program in Japan. Students will study Japanese at the beginner or intermediate level in an international environment at Sophia University, located in the center of Tokyo. Alongside the Japanese language courses, a lecture series, “Japanese Studies,” will provide you with insights on Japanese culture, society, economy and history.

The program consists of two parts, a Japanese language course and a lecture series on Japanese studies. Every day in the morning, three periods of Japanese language classes are offered (90 classes in total), in the afternoon a series of eight lectures (taught in English) will introduce the participants to important topics of contemporary Japan. The Japanese language courses are divided into three levels, beginners, intermediate and advanced- intermediate, and the class size is about 15 students.
