Whether for study or work purposes, Japanese classes are opening worldwide. To succeed, you must know what you will learn, how the class can support your Japanese learning goals, and how it works. Here is everything you need to know about the language class.
What You Will Learn
Materials you will learn and the methods the class will use depend on your language level, Japanese language goal, and the length of time you want to take to learn the language. In general, you will learn various materials, like grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, etc.
Differences Between High and Low-Intensity Japanese Language Classes
You can choose between high and low-intensity classes depending on your activities. If you don’t have time-demanding activities like going to school or doing a part-time job, you may choose the high-intensity class. This class involves a lot of self-study, besides loads of homework. In some cases, they will inform you whether you can take a part-time job. In the low-intensity class, meanwhile, you will expect less self-study and homework.
Remember! When you are expected to do some self-study, do it! Like classwork and homework, it is compulsory to pass the class.
How to Pass Japanese Classes
At the end of each term, usually every three or six months, there will be a test to check your level. The test is to verify your language competence. It also checks whether you are eligible to move up a level. To pass the test, you need to fulfill all the criteria. The criteria include attending all classes and doing all tasks and self-study recommended by the institution.
Differences between JLPT and J-Test
The JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) is the standard exam as it tests grammar, vocabulary, reading, and listening. The qualification is recognized widely. You can take the test in Japan or elsewhere in the world in July or December.
