Center for
Japanese Language and Culture

The Center for Japanese Language and Culture at Aichi Shukutoku University was founded in 1992 with a mission to provide students with knowledge of the Japanese language that can be used with confidence on various occasions and for various purposes. In order to pursue such a goal, we keep our classes to a maximum of ten students. At CJLC no student is left behind as long as he or she is willing and eager to learn. Our teaching staff, professionally trained, is always ready and enthusiastic to satisfy the needs of each student.
