Program Description:

Overview

 

Overview

  • The CET Gakuin program is intensive - students cover one academic year of university-level Japanese language study in eight weeks. To provide more breadth to this highly-efficient language straining, classes take students into the community where they complete diverse tasks-learn food names at the grocery store or ask a shopkeeper about the store's history-and practice their skills in as many settings as possible.
  • Osaka is a large city of 2.6 million people and is one of biggest economic centers in Japan. The city boasts easy access to many other Japanese cities-cultural Kyoto, trendy Kobe and historic Nara. Osaka is known as "nation's kitchen" and is a Mecca of inexpensive and tantalizing Japanese cuisine. The CET Japan program is located 15 minutes from Osaka's downtown. On campus, students enjoy access to many amenities: a library with over one million volumes, computer labs, sports facilities, a health center and gardens for strolling.
