Course guide

JLPT course


Each first and second half of the year, Shibuya Gaigo Gakuin offers a 10-day preparation course for the JLPT. Curriculum is tailored to the test, occuring either in July or December.

The course in the first half of the year focuses on understanding problems that may arise in the areas of kanji characters, vocabulary or grammar. Practical training follows after a deep analysis of these elements. Listening comprehension and reading comprehension trainings are relatively simple in order to accustom the learner step by step to the audit process of the JLPT.

The course in the second half of the year focuses on a practical, intensive training to make everything clear about kanji characters, vocabulary and grammar. Listening comprehension and reading comprehension trainings are separated in order to be taught in an optimal way and get the best possible results.

The preparation for the exams is intensified through daily homeworks in both courses.

Both courses promise to be a clear improvement of your language skills.

It is also possible to schedule both courses within a six-month period.
