The language component carries 12 quarter hours of OU credit. Opportunities for language practice outside the classes are numerous (e.g. conversation partners, Chubu University club, weekend home stays).
The cultural component consists of weekly experiential activities such as flower arranging, tea ceremony, calligraphy, etc. Weekly field trips to places of cultural and historical interest are also included as well as an overnight trip to Kyoto. Students will receive 4 hours of quarter credits for the cultural component.
