Meeting 5 days a week （9:00 a.m. – 12:20 p.m.）, the Regular Program offers an opportunity for intensive Japanese learning with immediate business and practical application. Depending on the student’s time frame and visa status, the Program is split into a 2-year General Course and a Short-term Course.
|2-year General Course||Those who obtain a valid student visa and plan to study between 6 months and 2 years.|
|Short-term Course||Those with visas other than the student visa may enroll and renew every term (3 months).|
Each term runs 3 months (10 weeks), making it a 4-term academic year. You may enroll in any term.

There are 8 levels, from Basic to Advanced. 10 weeks per term.
Basic level focuses on elementary communication skills necessary for work and day-to-day life, including conversation skills required for ordinary job performance and daily interchanges.
Intermediate level develops the communication ability needed for handling various situations at work and in daily life, as well as the proper use of keigo.
Advanced level hones the communication ability to fluently interact with native Japanese in all contexts both in the office and in day-to-day living.
We will decide whether a student has completed a given level on the basis of their attendance record, class evaluation and term-end test.
We have an approximately even distribution of students from Europe-North America, East Asia and other areas, without a disproportionate representation from any one geographic location.
