This program is for students who strive for communicative competence in Japanese. You'll exercise your Japanese language every day--in a fast-paced classroom, on the street, with your local roommates, for out-of-classroom assignments--and return home with vastly improved skills. Japanese language learners of all levels and majors are welcome. Students complete the entire textbook, typically one year of university-level Japanese, each term.
