The aim of this program is to improve Japanese language skills so as to build self-confidence when one day they face with the situation of using Japanese in interacting socially with the real Japanese community
There were several sessions in this activity, including classes on social cultural understanding, discussions on the development of Japanese culture and society, speech classes, cultural classes introducing Japanese culture and Indonesian culture to Japanese students, and variation classes that discussed e-learning in Japanese language teaching.
Moreover, through this program, the students and lecturers could make interaction with other people to make discussion, started from Elementary School, Junior High School, and college students, and local citizen as well.
