Learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to make students’ understanding of basic (JLPT N3-level) grammar solid and to further develop language skills so that they can advance to upper intermediate level. Emphasis of this course is on enabling students to interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers on familiar matters possible.

General description

Conversational practices, exercises (grammar, listening, Kanji), reading comprehension and short essays.


A placement test for Japanese language studies is arranged on 1 September 2015 at 10 a.m., indicating which level is most appropriate.

Please see the latest information on the CEAS Study Leaflet regarding starting dates.
