The Summer Courses in Japanese, which began on July 5 (Tues) and lasted for 6 weeks, ended on August 16 (Tues). In 2016, 102 students from 19 countries were enrolled in the program. This intensive six-week course provides classes for both non-native and native (heritage) speakers of Japanese, where students can increase their understanding of Japanese language and culture.

During the 6-week course, students not only studied Japanese language but also Japanese culture, and experienced sado(Japanese tea ceremony), traditional Japanese dance, and even had a chance to make Japanese-style cloth sandals.

Comments from the summer course students:

The summer course is a terrific program, one of the best to learn Japanese. I wish I can come back some day to take this course again.
There were various kinds of interesting Japanese culture programs, through which I was able to experience Japanese culture at first hand. I appreciate it so much.
I am so sad the summer course is over now. This valuable experience has become a memory of lifetime that I will never forget. I will share my memories with my family and friends when I go back home.
