Published: 6 May 2022


The Kobe University Summer Program in Japanese Language & Culture (Summer Program) is an intensive 10-day course for students studying Japanese at Universities sharing academic partnerships with Kobe University. Due to the global pandemic, the 2022 session like 2021, will be held online.

This program focusses on engaging students' Reading, Listening, Writing & Speaking skills through studying current issues in Japan, aiming to raise overall Japanese ability, as well as deepening understanding today's Japanese society. It particularly aims to strengthen the speaking ability of students at Upper Intermediate level. Through classes and interaction with Japanese people, the program hopes to provide an experience as close to studying in Japan as possible. Kobe University welcomes all students to apply--especially those who planned to study abroad if not for COVID-19.
