Japanese courses are meant principally for beginners, but not exclusively. The aim of the courses is to learn about Japanese culture, acquire basic grammatical skills and widen knowledge of the language and civilisation, both for personal enrichment and for a potential professional experience in the country of the Rising Sun (semester 8, double degree, internship). Teaching is based on everyday and professional situations. Students are encouraged to prepare for the JLPT (Japanese-language test administered by the Japan Foundation.)
