This Fall Semester, 142 students from 26 countries are enrolled at the CJS.
As is the case every year, the students mainly attend Intensive Japanese Classes in the morning, followed in the afternoon by Lecture Courses in Japanese Area Studies, Japanese Seminar Courses, Open Courses and Practical Courses in the Japanese Arts. The program has been further enhanced with the number of courses being increased this semester. We consider that the extracurricular field trips, including a visit to the Toyota Motor Corporation factory, going to watch kabuki, and Zen meditation at a monastery, also play a useful role in enriching the students' study experience in Japan.
In September we set up the CJS Alumni Information page on the University website.
We updated the CJS News section, added four items of news from the 2007 Fall Semester and updated the Former International Students section, so please do have a look. The next update is planned for the end of December.
Next time you come to Japan please drop in at Nanzan University. We look forward to seeing you again.
(From this time on we have changed the name of the newsletter sent out by e-mail to "E-Newsletter for CJS Alumni." "E" stands for electronic.)
