The Center for International Education and Exchange (CIEE) will hold the 4th Osaka University Conference on Research in Specialized Japanese Language Instruction: "Thinking about Specialized Japanese Language Instruction and How it relates to Career Development" on Tuesday, March 8. Focusing on the concepts of "career development" and "communication ability," the center has invited three lecturers: a Keio University professor, a company worker who studied here as an international student, and a specially appointed professor who serves as career counselor at Osaka University.

They will thoroughly discuss the topics of university education and  support for such study required to nurture personnel able to respond with flexibility to the requirements of a global society thanks to specialized instruction in Japanese.
