17:19 JST, April 14, 2022
Tokyo University of Foreign Studies is to offer a free online Ukrainian language course for local government personnel and company employees who deal with people who fled Ukraine after Russia’s invasion.
The course, announced Wednesday, is intended to help participants learn about Ukraine’s language and culture in order to support displaced Ukrainians in Japan. Classes are scheduled to start on April 22 and will comprise six 90-minute-long interactive sessions.
“We hope the course will help participants effectively communicate [with Ukrainian people],” said a university official who leads the language program.
The university also plans to start offering in late May a free online Japanese language course for students at Ukrainian universities who major in Japanese and other relevant subjects.
