Waseda Nihongo Support

Center for Japanese Language at Waseda University offers Waseda Nihongo Support to the students who are keen to develop Japanese proficiency and learning skills in their self-directed learning. The staff is available to support learners with individual needs and problems. Not only beginners but also advanced learners can receive helpful support and guidance in all aspects of their Japanese learning as well as in their daily campus life. Come and join Waseda Nihongo Support!

Waseda Nihongo Support provides 5 main supports: 1) Consultations about Learning Japanese, 2) Questions about Japanese, 3) Providing Resources for Learning Japanese, 4) Running Japanese Learning Events, 5) Cooperation with Organizations in Waseda University.

1) Consultations about Learning Japanese

Students can discuss things like how to learn Japanese, and how to make study plans. International students who are having trouble learning Japanese or want to try something new can think about solutions and approaches together with staff. Forexample, they can get support when they’re having difficulty improving, can’t find a learning style that suits them, or want to make an effective learning plan.

2) Questions about Japanese

Staff work together with international students to solve their problems, questions, and so on about Japanese. For example, they can help students when they don’t understand grammar or usage very well, want to check whether they’re expressing or writing something correctly, or want to check what a sentence says.

3) Providing Resources for Learning Japanese

Students can get a variety of information to help them learn Japanese. We suggest textbooks and learning materials to international students who want to learn from a book, study online, or find out about what good apps and Web-based materials are available.

4) Running Japanese Learning Events

We run seminars and events to support international students with their learning and careers, including support seminars for taking the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) and job hunting, and seminars for discussing options after graduation. They also serve as opportunities to get to know fellow international students and swap information, and are easy to participate in.

5) Cooperation with Organizations in Waseda University

If students want to get information about something other than learning Japanese, we’ll tell them about suitable services and organizations within the university. For example, we can help people who want to know about international exchange events or learn more about job hunting. By cooperating with other relevant organizations, we support international students from every perspective.
