Transferable Skills Seminar – Let’s Learn Japanese

Event | November 19, 2018

Finished Nov 19 2018

This seminar is for all international students, and will be conducted in English.

For the students learning and studying all in English, attending a Japanese class is very difficult. If you really want to gain Japanese language proficiency with minimum cost, there are some ways to do it by yourself using free resources. The seminar will give you some hints on how you can accomplish this challenging task.

Seminar Overview
Language is “sound.” The best way to learn a foreign language is to stay in the country and take in words after words. Don’t miss your chance to use this advantage while you are at Hokkaido University.

  • Workshop: Communicating with your friends. Tell who you are.
  • How to utilize free online tools: which one should I choose?
  • Q&A
