NUFSA Japanese Course for Family
Due to the novel coronavirus disease, the 2021 spring course will be conducted online by Zoom. Babysitting service has been cancelled.
NUFSA Japanese Course for Family is organized by NUFSA (Nagoya University International Student Association), in cooperation with the Nagoya Sakae Lions Club. Twice every week, instructors specialized in teaching Japanese help the family members learn Japanese using textbooks. There are events like Winter Cultural Gathering, other than the classroom learning activities.
By participating in this course, international families get an opportunity to meet other families and get exposure to Japan. Let's enjoy life in Japan by learning Japanese.
