Neither JETAA or the University will profit from this course and costs are only to cover overheads. The price includes the gorgeous accommodation, Japanese food and cookery lessons, and of course, formal teaching from the University’s highly qualified staff.
Please register your interest via the form on this page, or via email@example.com
In addition to at least 4.5 hours of formal teaching and test preparation from The University of Edinburgh’s talented and experienced Japanese Department, the weekend will aim to be immersive – i.e. we’ll be conversing in Japanese as much as possible, even whilst eating and socialising!
Having said that – the emphasis is on fun for ALL LEVELS, so don’t let the immersive aspect scare you! This will be about practising the skills you have in a relaxed atmosphere outside lessons, should you want to!
