Starting in June 2013, Sophia University will organize a new short-term intensive program – the Summer Session in Japanese Language. The six-week Summer Session is designed for students who want to improve their Japanese language abilities through an intensive program in Japan. Students will study Japanese at the beginner or intermediate level in an international environment in the heart of Tokyo. Alongside the Japanese language courses, a lecture series on Japanese Studies will provide students with insights on Japan’s culture, society, economy, and history.

Program Overview
The program consists of two parts, a Japanese language course and a lecture series on Japanese studies. Every day in the morning, three periods of Japanese language classes are offered (90 classes in total), and in the afternoon a series of eight lectures (taught in English) will introduce the participants to important topics of contemporary Japan. The Japanese language courses are divided into three levels (beginners, intermediate and advanced- intermediate) and the class size is about 15 students.
