Notices

  • Placement tests will be conducted to check your Japanese language ability if you register for Elementary II or higher level courses. However, a student who has taken 4H course B or 8H course in the previous semester and passed it, will be exempted from this semester's placement test and will be allowed to take courses from the next higher level.
    Furthermore, a student who received 65~74 (C) or 60~64 (D) and feels uneasy about advancing to the next level may consult one of the faculty during the advisory service for Japanese language course registration.
  • Make sure that the “4H Course A” of each level covers only the first half of the textbook while the “4H Course B” covers the second half of the textbook. Check the syllabus for the details of these courses.
