Japanese Language & Culture Course for NU International Students' Family
The classes on the Japanese Language & Culture Course for NU International Students' Family are operated by NUFSA, in cooperation with Nagoya Sakae Lions Club. Instructors specialized in Japanese language teaching help the family members learn Japanese language and culture twice every week. There are events like Summer and Winter Cultural Gathering, other than the class room learning activities.
By participating in this program, international families get an opportunity to meet other families and get exposure to Japan. Let's enjoy life in Japan by learning Japanese language.
