J-ShIP Course Overview

Japanese class

A class consists of approximately 15 students. Students have 2 to 3 lessons per day. They are also assigned with daily homework.

Listen to my story

From 2014 summer J-ShIP, a new project which is called "Listen to my story" has been launched. For this project, the students have to talk to an Osaka University student to receive comment on their essays. Through this project, J-ShIP students will have not only an opportunity to practice speaking Japanese to a native speaker but also to chat with OU students and get to know each other.

Optional Overnight Trip

During the program, an optional overnight trip will be organized. The cost depends on the destination; however it usually costs approximately 13,000JPY. During the past program, students went to Hiroshima, Naoshima and Hida-Takayama. Through this trip, you can enjoy the time with your friends whilst enjoying beautiful scenery and learning Japanese history.
