Intensive Japanese

Japanese language courses are a requirement for all JSP students. The intensive Japanese language courses are opportunities to enhance your skills through small class sizes offering better student-teacher interaction and focus than most university courses. Classes run 3 hours in the morning, 4 days a week.

Courses are offered at four different levels of Japanese, from beginner to high intermediate.

Course Title Approximate Course Level Credits
Japanese Language Course A JLPT N5 (Lower Beginner) 8 credits
Japanese Language Course B JLPT N4 (Upper Beginner) 8 credits
Japanese Language Course C JLPT N3 (Lower Intermediate) 8 credits
Japanese Language Course D JLPT N2 (Upper Intermediate) 8 credits

Combined with a homestay and other tutoring services available on campus, your language ability will advance rapidly and comprehensively. Students already possessing advanced Japanese-language abilities can elect to take higher-level Japanese language classes as well as external courses taught in Japanese. These courses are only available in the spring semester.

I’ve grown an incredible amount in my Japanese and I owe it to the amazing teachers at TIU for making it a fun and fulfilling experience.
