NEW!  WWU Faculty-led Summer Learning Blitz!

If you’d like an injection of Japanese language and culture, with cultural aspects taught by a WWU professor, consider this four-week program.

The first two weeks are a language intensive, based on your own proficiency level. The remaining two weeks are a cultural discovery organized by the WWU professor who will be there to teach you. In these four weeks you will acquire 60 hours of Japanese language (suggested 6 quarter credits / 4 semester credits) and culture (depending on course content, 4–5 quarter credits, 3–4 semester credits). There is a minimum of 10 students.

You don’t have to be a WWU student to apply. Note, though, that like all info on our website, dates and costs are subject to change.

Liven up your summer, with a month of Japanese!
