Konichiwa! Learn the Japanese language at the School of IS to enhance your understanding of the ricg Japanese culture and traditions!  Learning a foreign language benefits students who enhanced their understanding of Japanese society and culture.

About 20 Japanese Enhancement Programme students went on a study trip to Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama.. The programme’s objectives to raise awareness and understanding of the Japanese society, history, culture and politics and to create mutual trust and friendship among the people of Japan and Singapore.


Immersion Trips

Overseas study trips to Japan aim to enhance NP students’ Japanese language proficiency through understanding the rich Japanese culture in Kagoshima, Kumamoto and Fukuoka.  Highlights included interaction opportunities with students from Kagoshima National College of Technology and Kumamoto National College of Technology. They visited traditional Japanese confectionery factories, had farm stays in the Izumi city and explorations of the history of Kumamoto Castle.


NP Japanese Senpai (seniors in school) had previously participated in the annual Japanese Speech Contests organized by the E​mbassy of Japan and the Japanese Association in Singapore.  They were extensively coached by the Sch of IS lecturers and performed very well during the intense rounds of competition. NP students did us proud having garnered several awards and certificates of participation.


Our sensei-tachi (tutors) were really patient with us. I wish to show my gratitude to my tutors for their guidance.
