We are nearly three months away but now is a good time to start getting your applications ready for YAMASA’s Acceleration Program (ACCP)!
ACCP is a great opportunity for you to boost your Japanese language ability in the most efficient way possible. It is also ideal for university students on summer vacation to continue their Japanese language abilities in a completely immersive environment. The course itself can run from 4 to 12 weeks (depending on student preferences). We will receive our first intake of students on June 2nd and will continue taking in students at periodic intervals until August 11th. For further information, please check out our ACCP page!
