Online Summer Crash Course for Beginners
This course will be conducted entirely online.
This course is designed for beginning learners of Japanese. You will learn how to introduce yourself, greet others, and communicate in simple terms using the expressions you have learned. You will also learn Japanese that can be used in situations that you will encounter after coming to Japan. Also, at the end of the course, there will be an exchange session with Japanese people where you can actually use the Japanese you’ve learned. This course is recommended for those who want to study intensively during summer vacation.
