Educational Goals

- We aim to equip students with practical Japanese language skills: reading, listening, writing, and speaking. We will assist students in studying all four of these skills, helping them to acquire the Japanese that they need to achieve their goals.

- We aim to equip students with both knowledge and cultural understanding, including understanding of the cultural contexts behind the Japanese language, as well as a deeper understanding of foreign cultures in general.


- We aim to equip students with the Japanese that they need in order to express themselves independently; students will build the skills that they need both for self-expression and to independently work toward their goals.
