Now Accepting Applications for Winter 2017-18 SCSP
22nd of September 2017

Yamasa's summer course SCSP (SILAC Comprehensive Summer Program) is a program designed to help students achieve significant improvement in their Japanese abilities in a short period of time, through a combination of comprehensive Japanese classes and private lessons that allow students to study the things that interest them. It is a course exclusive to Yamasa that we can confidently recommend. In the summer of 2017, there were so many applicants that we unfortunately had to turn some away, and we received excellent feedback from the course participants. Therefore, in response to students' requests, we have decided to offer the SCSP course in not only the summer, but the winter season as well. (The name of the course will also be changing from Summer Program to Special Program.) We have already opened applications for the Winter 2017-18 and Summer 2018 courses. We wholeheartedly recommend the SCSP course to anyone who wants to make use of a short holiday to rapidly improve their Japanese abilities in a limited period of time.
