JLCP is open for students from our partner universities, and offers classes on the Japanese language as well as culture. These classes provide students with opportunities to improve Japanese proficiency and explore various aspects of Japanese culture. Students will develop intercultural understanding of one another’s culture through interacting with those from different backgrounds.
