The Japanese Conversation Program was conducted at Kinugasa Campus, Biwako-Kusatsu Campus, and Osaka Ibaraki Campus between April 18 and June 13.

This program is one of the Language Support Programs for graduate students of Ritsumeikan University offered by the Graduate Students Career Path Support Center. The participants took classes twice a week for 6 weeks from April to June and learned daily Japanese conversation and basic Japanese characters such as Katakana and Kanji. In addition to Japanese instructors, Ritsumeikan Japanese student volunteers were present to help their studies.
