Course in Japan Studies

International College of Liberal Arts - Yamanashi Gakuin University
Campus Full time April 2017 Japan Kōfu

The JSP (Japan Studies Program) consists of the Japan Area Studies Program (JAS) and the Japanese Language Program (JLP). [+]

Best Course Studies in Language in Japan 2017. Course in Japan Studies The JSP (Japan Studies Program) consists of the Japan Area Studies Program (JAS) and the Japanese Language Program (JLP). JAS courses are embedded within the liberal arts curriculum to ensure both that they have a strong academic base and that students are able to see Japan from a number of disciplinary perspectives. JAS is proud to host a large number of experiential workshops on Japanese culture taught by masters in Noh, Koto, Shakuhachi, Zen, Shinto, Shodo, Sado, Kado, and the martial arts: Aikido, Judo, Karate and Shugendo. The JLP includes not only Japanese language courses ranging from beginning to advanced levels but also courses in professional Japanese writing, reading Japanese newspapers, and public speaking in Japanese. Our Language Acquisition Center (LAC) includes a Japanese Writing Desk to help Japanese and international students polish their composition skills. Japanese Culture Classroom Japanese Culture Classroom A Wooden Floor At iCLA we use a wood floor in Japanese Culture Classroom A and this is where we host our Noh, Shugendo and other workshops. Wooden flooring has always been a cornerstone of the traditional Japanese way of life. It is the oldest type of flooring in Japanese history, and in olden days entire houses had wooden flooring. Round tatami mats were used only in places where people sat and slept. Japanese Culture Classroom B   Tatami Floor Japanese Culture Classroom B’s floor is made of tatami mats. We host our Sado workshops here and other activities that involve sitting on the floor. Tatami mats are traditionally made by weaving straw and have an exact 2:1 aspect ratio. This makes it possible to create perfectly square or rectangular spaces depending on the occasion. Determining the size of a room this way is also something that is quintessentially Japanese. Even now, office space is often measured “by the mat.” Central Garden    Bamboo Grove Our beautiful bamboo garden can be seen from six different angles on both floors of the building—a perfect way to appreciate a plant with long connections to Japanese culture. Bamboo is endemic to the Japanese archipelago south of Aomori Prefecture and has long been used as a building material. Often considered to be something between a tree and a grass, it grows as quickly as grass but like a tree its stalks grow straight and woody. At iCLA we hope that the students will be like bamboo: flexible, and capable of growing rapidly. 12 Hands-On Workshops Learn about Japan’s Arts and Culture in 12 Hands-On Workshops *More workshops to be announced.

Hirosaki which prospered originally as a castle town, used to be ruled by the Tsugaru clan. It is surrounded by farming areas to this day. Hirosaki is one of the best places for cherry blossom viewing in Japan, and is widely known for its Neputa festival in summer. The cost of living is relatively low, making it livable for students from abroad. It offers a comfortable environment for students to live in because there are many apartments, dining places and bars geared to their needs in the vicinity of the university. It is possible to go downtown in about 15-20 minutes on foot. Most students use bicycles as a primary means of transportation. Japanese Language Courses & Electives Our curriculum is designed for international students who require Japanese language training and also offers students an opportunity to study areas of interest in English.

Classes taught in English cover areas of interest to international students, such as Japanese culture and arts and other fields.

English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

Lakeland College Japan
Campus Full time Part time April 2017 Japan Tokyo

For non-native English speakers who need to improve their English skills to meet the challenges of academic study, there is Lakeland’s EAP (English for Academic Purposes) program. The EAP is an intensive program designed to assist students to acquire not only English language skills but also the academic and study skills necessary for college success. [+]

EAP: Acquire the Tools for Academic Success For non-native English speakers who need to improve their English skills to meet the challenges of academic study, there is Lakeland’s EAP (English for Academic Purposes) program. The EAP is an intensive program designed to assist students to acquire not only English language skills but also the academic and study skills necessary for college success. Teachers in the EAP program help students improve their general English reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills and increase their knowledge of vocabulary necessary for college study. What makes the program unique, however, is that EAP classes focus on developing such academic abilities as note-taking, summarizing, test-taking, essay writing, classroom discussion, and presentation skills. Intensive Study: EAP students attend 5 days a week, 3 classes per day—in all, students spend over 21 hours per week in the classroom. In addition, they can expect 2 or more hours of homework nightly. The intensive workload enables students to maximize their time as they work to develop their academic English skill and prepares them for the demands of college study in a foreign language. Small Classes: As the average EAP class size is 17 students, teachers are able to give full attention to each student. In addition, each teacher is available outside the classroom for daily office hours to give individual students extra help or just to talk. Study in a Communicative Environment: All EAP classes are set up to allow students maximum time to talk to their classmates and to the teacher. Even activities such as checking homework are considered a chance for small-group speaking practice, ensuring that students have ample opportunity to develop the English speaking fluency necessary to survive in an Academic setting. Many new students report that they have never been asked “What do you think?” and “Why do you think so?” in a classroom before---in the EAP program, students can expect to hear these questions and to share their ideas and opinions in every class! An All-English Environment: Lakeland is not a Japanese college--it’s an American college; therefore, students are required to use only English in EAP classes. Moreover, the international atmosphere at LCJ insures that the “global language” of English is being spoken outside the classroom as well. Visa Sponsorship: As recognized by the Japanese Ministry of Education (Monbushou), Lakeland is the only American college in Japan that can sponsor full-time student visas for EAP students. Earn College Credit: EAP classes are not just training for college classes—they are college classes. Students who complete Lakeland College Japan’s EAP program and continue on to Lakeland’s Home Campus in Wisconsin are eligible to receive 12 credits towards their Bachelor’s Degree, saving significant amounts of both time and money. The Right Level for You: The EAP program is comprised of 5 levels Each student is placed in the class appropriate for his or her English skill and will use textbooks and materials particular to that class level. Students study in one class level for the duration of a 14-week semester (coinciding with Lakeland’s Academic semester schedule). EAP Faculty: All EAP faculty members are native speakers of English, have earned graduate degrees (Master’s or Ph.D.), and all have extensive teaching experience, both in Japan and other countries.
