In the Comprehensive Course, students learn the four major skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing through a well-balanced and systematic approach, allowing them to acquire flexible Japanese language skills that can be used not only during daily conversation, but will also aid them in various situations such as pursuing higher education, finding employment, and acquiring qualifications. In addition, students will deepen their understanding of Japan and the language through experiencing Japanese customs and culture, and learning about Japanese rules and manners, and the Japanese way of thinking.
