Excellent Japanese Language Education with Diverse Optional Subjects Offered Every Weekdays
We take survey of our students each term (3 months) to find out which of the optional subjects (approximately 120) are of the most interest to our students. Then we select maximum 45 subjects with the highest number of requests and create a weekly schedule. Students could choose one subject a day, up to 5 subjects a week to create a unique schedule suited to their particular need.
Full support for students preparing for graduate school admission
As part of the Optional Subjects Curriculum, we offer subject classes designed to prepare students for graduate school admission. These classes are offered from previous winter term through autumn term, and all the students applying for graduate studies will be guided through these classes. In “Writing Research Proposals” students will learn how to research and write their own proposals, and in “Reading Previous Research Papers”, they will learn how to successfully survey previous researches in their chosen field.
