Waseda Nihongo Support provides 3 main supports: 1) Advising Japanese learning, 2) Collecting Information for learning resources; and 3) Japanese drop-in desk.
(1) Advising Japanese learning
If you are having difficulty with gaining proficiency, finding a study method suited for yourself, making a plan for study, or developing your Japanese study field, consult the support staff. He/she will think together, and try to find the best way to solve your problem.
Let’s plan your own Japanese learning using the portfolio.
(2) Collecting Information for Learning Resources
We will provide various kinds of information about textbooks, websites, events, and facilities on and off campus, and explain you in order that you could make the best use of these as learning resources.
(3) Japanese Drop-in Desk
You may ask any questions about the Japanese language such as grammar, vocabulary or expressions, etc. If you have questions such as “How does the grammar work?”, “What does this word mean?”,“Is my Japanese expression correct?”, or “I want to check the content of the article”, ask the support staff. He/she will support you through the conversation until you understand it.
