    CET Japan is an intensive language program designed to maximize your progress—each semester covers a year's worth of Japanese. Your teachers are experienced and dedicated, your peers are other motivated gap students and college undergraduates, and the curriculum is immersive and challenging. The program runs for Spring and Fall terms and is based in Osaka.

    You are placed into the appropriate level of intensive Japanese language, participate in one-on-one targeted instruction, and uphold a limited language pledge. Japanese in Daily Life teaches you the language you need to thrive in your new day-to-day and classes take you off-campus to chat with locals and hear how Japanese is spoken colloquially.
