This introduction to Japanese course has been created by the Widening Participation team and takes 10 weeks to complete. Every week, there is a live session with the teacher, and some activities to complete as preparation or follow-up to these sessions. The first and last sessions take place at SOAS, while the other 8 happen online for 60 minutes each.

The Japanese blended course aims to:

  • Encourage immersion in the Japanese Language through film, tv, music and other cultural artefacts
  • Develop learners' transferable study skills associated with academic success and wellbeing
  • Foster a community of learners able to keep each other motivated
  • Inform Sixth formers on the range of courses available in higher education
