The department of Practical Japanese cultivates the use of the Japanese language for international trade, economics, tourism, and clerical work. The Department is characterized by its departure from the traditional academic emphasis on literature and linguistics. Practice and applications of the Japanese language is the main focus, with emphasis on speaking, listening, writing and translation. The Department of Practical Japanese encourages exchange programs with Tamkang University’s sister schools in Japan each summer, and sends students to local businesses to gain experience as trainees. We have the stop recruitment of students on 2006 academic year.
