IJCCI Language School is in existence since 1989. The School conducts Japanese Language classes, both class room teaching and distance education, offers coaching for Japanese Language Proficiency Tests for all levels – JLPT N5 till N1, and special Japanese language conversation courses, as well as language programmes to suit the requirements of business organizations, when required.
The school has a well equipped Reference Library with over 3,000 books on Japan in Japanese and English and a good collection of audio and video materials received through generous donations from the Japan Foundation.
Japanese Language Classes are conducted throughout the year to prepare students for the different levels of the Japan Foundation's Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).
Need-based conversation classes, both short-term and long-term, are conducted for the benefit of corporate houses. Corporate Executives are given special coaching to read, write and speak in Japanese language under a Fast Track Programme, to help communicate with their Japanese counterparts. Special Japanese Language Classes are also conducted for students of professional colleges on request.
A Distance Education Programme for the benefit of outstation students not able to attend the regular classes, facilitates students to acquire proficiency in Japanese Conversation. A specially designed programme to enable outstation students to read, write and speak Japanese language and appear for JLPT is also being offered by the language school. A Kaiwa Club (Conversation Club) addresses the communication problem among students in conversing in the language and helps them hone their Japanese skill to speak without any inhibition.
