Japanese Language Class by WAWA


Formal nomenclature

International Student Support Volunteer Group, WAWA (attached to the Center for Global Partnerships and Education), Okayama University.


1. Volunteer Tutors

For those students who are new arrivals in Japan, for the first six months arrangements will be made to provide a volunteer tutor. As a general rule, once a week for about one to two hours the volunteer will meet with the student to assist them with such things as studying Japanese, shopping, and escorting them around campus. For other activities, decisions will be made on an individual basis at the student's request.

2. Japanese Classroom

This is a class for the families of international students who are taking Japanese as a subject. Both researchers and the international students themselves are also able to participate. Generally speaking, class times are as shown below, but can be modified if needed:

  • Beginner's class: Wednesday, 14:00-15:00
  • Intermediate class: Wednesday, 15:00-16:00

If you have a request to make, it is possible to do so at any time. This is a place not only for Japanese study, but for those spouses who are trapped in their homes because of the difficulty they have understanding Japanese.
