The Japanese for Exams course is now available each year only between October and November, i.e. the two months before the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.
The new Exam Skills option is offered year-round, as follows:
Every week, your teacher gives you homework, including past papers from the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). Each Friday, you meet with the teacher for an hour to discuss any problems with the homework, and how to improve your weak points. The teacher acts as a “tutor”, guiding your studies. Classes are available corresponding to JLPT levels 2, 3 and 4.
Friday (for new students, Monday): Receive that week’s homework
Wednesday: Receive the homework answer paper
Thursday: Hand in your corrected homework, for your teacher to evaluate
Friday (around 3pm): Exam Skills class!
2,100 yen per week
You can sign up when applying to the school, or after arrival by talking to our office staff. The new option will give you a lot of practice in the skills you need to pass Japanese exams, while complementing your studies in other classes. It’s obviously recommended for anyone thinking of taking the JLPT or other exams. However, we also recommend it for any students who want to increase the amount of kanji and vocabulary they study each week.
