Program Description:

CET Japan

CET Japan students
This program is for students who strive for communicative competence in Japanese. You'll exercise your Japanese language every day--in a fast-paced classroom, on the street, with your local roommates, for out-of-classroom assignments--and return home with vastly improved skills. Japanese language learners of all levels and majors are welcome. Students complete the entire textbook, typically one year of university-level Japanese, each term.

Your Japanese Will Improve by Leaps and Bounds.

  • Intensive Japanese language curriculum that completes the entire textbook in a term--typically 1 year of university-level language
  • Japanese language pledge: full-time in the summer, limited in the semesters
  • Language projects and exercises that take students outside the classroom
  • Electives in Japanese and English: business, performing arts, religion, history and culture
  • Local roommates
  • No language prerequisite for the fall and spring
  • Summer is open to students with at least 2 semesters of previous Japanese language study
