Special Online Japanese Course: Advanced (B2)

Registration for our September 2024 Japanese language courses opens on August 1st at 12 pm ET!

Our Advanced course is designed for students who have completed our Intermediate 2 course and will develop students’ language skills (receptive, productive and interactive) at the B2 level of the JF Standard. During this course students will work towards the following goals:

  • Can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation.
  • Can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party.
  • Can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
