Summer Intensive Course
This is a 4-week intensive study course carefully divided into several levels so that the students taking the course can study at levels appropriate for their respective abilities in Japanese. In the afternoons, there are a number of Japanese culture experience programs available (free-choice elective classes). An explanation of the experience programs and application forms will be available when the Summer Intensive Course starts.
■Distinctive features of the class
The Summer Intensive Course at our school is designed for students who sincerely wish to understand Japan and cultivate useful Japanese. We have established programs conducted outside of the school that are designed so the students can confirm and stabilize the results of studies conducted in the classroom. Further, the things the students learn outside of the classroom are incorporated in the following classroom studies. This kind of Japanese language study can only be conducted in Japan, and the experience programs have a multifarious content, including observation tours, Japanese culture experience programs, exchange programs with Japanese university students, etc. This study program can only be found in Kyoto.
