FUKUOKA – Fukuoka, Japan’s 6th largest city, is the economic and cultural hub of Kyushu, one of Japan’s main islands. Because of its close proximity to Korea and China, it is considered the gateway to Asia. In Fukuoka, you’ll experience a different lifestyle than in Tokyo or Osaka. Being more spacious and also close to the ocean, also contribute to a much more comfortable way of life. Another great thing about Fukuoka are the beautiful views of the ocean you’ll get to see!

Term breakdown

TERM 1

TERM 2
Once the basics have been mastered with some kanji already introduced, this is where your learning ramps up with more focus on vocabulary and kanji. Plus some of the most important Japanese grammar points will be introduced in this term.

TERM 3
Kanji will be seamlessly integrated in your coursework and you will be required to use it over hiragana. Grammar points such as tenses and keigo will be covered. JLPT N4 level equivalent

TERM 4
Focus will be placed in longer and more difficult reading comprehension examples. Longer passages and harder kanji and vocabulary will be involved. Focus will be moved away from daily life topics to more advanced and educational topics. JLPT N3 level equivalent
