Major Events


The Research Center for Foreign Language Education hosts lectures by people active in professions related in some way to foreign languages.


The aim of the workshops is not merely to get people to learn a foreign language, but to learn through directly experiencing living languages, to actually speak and utilize the foreign languages they have learned, and to make use of their linguistic abilities in business contexts and conference presentations.

*Workshops will not be held in AY 2020.
