Japanese Language Brush-up before the Trip

Short-term study participants can avail themselves of Japanese language education services provided by ‘Pirates of Education,’ a Japanese language education institution. This opportunity allows you not only to enhance your Japanese language skills before their study abroad but also to maintain proficiency and connect with Japanese learners worldwide even after their stay.
