Course recommendations
Before you take Japanese courses they wil ask you to do a jumpingtest to see in which level you will go. I wasnt prepared at all and I should do some real serious homework before I take this test! its only a multiple choise test so just recognize the grammar and choose from 5 answers. As well for the Kanji test. you only need to recognize them. The other courses are great. There are many to choose from and there is even bruspainting and ceramics making real Japanese pottery which is a unique experience.

Well having a MC Donalds, a convenience store, travelagency, big cafetaria`s, great Gym, what do you want more? Finding Japanese friends is kinda hard.Just be open and just ask them to be their friend and its the best way to learn Japanese.

Course recommendations
They look a million times more interesting on paper. There are a variety of courses that look like they fit exactly this or that quirky specialization. On the inside, they are simplified beyond recognition. Still interesting, but if you want to learn anything, its all up to you. Easy grades though. Japanese classes are dry and tough. The teaching style is distincltly unflexible. If you have special learning needs though, the office will help you have those met.

Course recommendations
The courses may not be as rigorous as what you are used to, but I think the school knows that this is a foreign environment and there are so many opportunities for culture and travel that take place outside of the classroom. The teachers live on or near campus, so they are always accessible. And of course, some classes are better than others.

Standards could have been higher. Some students deliberately went to just enough classes to pass with a "D," since their grades didn't transfer to their home university.

They should have more options and a wider range of courses, but I was limited by my own degree requirements back home.

If you are in the advanced Japanese courses, the teachers are pretty strict with the learning curve. So be prepared to spend some time reviewing and preparing for the next classes because the pace goes pretty fast.

I think the current arrangements work for most students and allow enough free time for interaction outside the university.
