Language Education and Research Center

Facilities and Affiliated Research Institutes

The language learning facilities located on the fourth floor of Building No.1 are one of the largest in western Japan, consisting of two Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) Rooms, 10 Language Laboratory (LL) Rooms and a self-study LL Library. A total of 21 instructors, both native English speakers and Japanese instructors, are employed to teach English to all KSU students, regardless of faculty, in small classes arranged in accordance with their English ability. The center also offers seminars for TOEIC and official language examinations in French, German, Chinese and Korean, as well as English debate sessions.

The LL Library, a self-study space for students, features a new system for computer-based language learning support, which enables students to receive e-learning materials on or off the campus.
