Japanese language courses (for non-JLP students)
For Japanese Language Program(JLP), please refer to the following web page. Japanese language courses for JLP are entirely different from those for KIP/RP.
- Keio International Program(KIP) and Research Program(RP) students are allowed to take up to four Japanese language courses offered by the Center for Japanese Studies per semester.
- "Keio Japanese Courses" are offered to KIP and RP students. These courses include subjects in seven study levels from elementary to advanced, in which students can effectively learn the Japanese language in a short period of time and balance their studies in Japanese language with other courses.
- Each KJC course is worth 1 credit.
The subjects focus on developing skills of communication (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) comprehensively. At the elementary level, students can efficiently learn the basics of Japanese and cultivate the communication skills essential for daily life. In the intermediate and advanced levels, there are a variety of subjects offered to build up students’ proficiency of language with mutual interaction in Japanese and to deepen their understanding of Japanese culture and society.
