Overview

Learn to speak, write, and read fluently in Japanese. Our Japanese courses focus on a range of areas pertaining to verbal and written fluency -- including an understanding of Hiragana and Katakana -- making it ideal for those who wish to build their proficiency in Japanese and refine their conversational skills. Students will also explore Japanese culture and have the opportunity to partake in interactive, practical lessons designed to help advance their personal and professional development.

Note: Students may not use Japanese as a course credit towards a diploma or certificate if Japanese is her/his first language. Seneca College reserves the right to remove students from courses if the student possesses Japanese language abilities above the level of enrolment.
