  • Deepen your understanding of a culture and language based on English studies

    In Foreign Language studies, we compare foreign languages with the Japanese language and learn the differences between the spoken and written languages. The phonetic difference means that there are different sounds from Japanese. The difference of written words means different characters. When you compare words, you can discover many differences and similarities between them. This is one of the joys of learning a foreign language. In addition, through language differences, we can deepen our understanding of the cultures of the people who speak each language.
