Japanese courses are mainly intended for non-beginners (at least one year and a half of learning the language). They continue to discover the Japanese language and culture, and deepen their understanding of basic grammar and key linguistic features. This is to reach a sufficient level for a stay in Japan (double degree, internship in a Japanese company). We always encourage students to take the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test, issued by the Japan Foundation).
