Focus on Specific Language Skills

Upon reaching an upper-intermediate or advanced level of language proficiency, learners often find that they are much stronger in some areas and weaker in others. With this in mind, TUJ Continuing Education has developed over 30 courses to help participants improve specific language skills. From public speaking to business writing to exam preparation, these courses allow you to focus your time and energy on where you need it the most.

The below tables provide information on course schedules and fees. Courses run for ten weeks unless otherwise specified. Please note that not all courses run each semester. The columns on the right indicate which semesters the course is scheduled. Schedules may be subject to change, so please check for updates on this website periodically.
