The 4-week summer program will not be implemented for 2019 academic year.

Program Outline

Aichi Shukutoku University will offer an intensive program in Japanese language and culture in summer 2018. The program has 3 levels; survival, elementary, and intermediate. Survival Japanese is for those who have never learnt Japanese before. The other 2 levels are designed to meet the needs of those who have some experience learning Japanese, but are not quite ready to use it practically. Participants in Survival Japanese will learn the very basic phrases of Japanese necessary to “survive” in a short stay in Japan. Participants in the other 2 levels will enhance their knowledge of Japanese language and improve both their listening and speaking skills.

Through hands-on workshops in shodo (calligraphy), ikebana (flower arrangement), and sado (tea ceremony) participants will increase their understanding of Japanese culture and find its charm.

Some networking events and a Nagoya city tour with ASU Japanese students are planned during the program and participants will have opportunity to interact with Japanese students.
