The Japan Foundation provides Japanese Language Courses in which students learn not only how to interact in Japanese, but also about Japanese culture and thinking. “Marugoto”, which is our original textbook, has attractive full color pages. It has many useful topics which can be used in daily situations. So, students can have fun studying Japanese. Our Courses focus on communication using the Japanese language. We think the most important thing is not only how much knowledge the students get, but also what the students can do with their knowledge.
And our Courses include a lot of cultural activities like making sushi, how to wear Yukata, Japanese calligraphy, etc. Through these activities, the courses strengthen the student’s team work and cooperation, which are important in the Japanese society. The Courses are given by appropriately qualified and well-trained teachers.
The Courses are currently held in Garden City: Cairo Center Bldg. (3rd & 5th Fl.), 106 Kasr Al-Aini St., Garden City, Cairo
The Japanese Language Courses in Alexandria started in 2007. Their aim is to provide a comprehensive introduction to Japanese Language lovers in Alexandria.
The Basic Japanese Language Course: This course is designed to provide beginners with basic level knowledge of the Japanese language and skills to utilize in daily conversations, reading and writing simple text in Japanese.
The Japan Foundation Cairo Office provides special courses beside the regular Japanese Language Courses to those who wish to study Japanese language for special reasons or who are of a different age than that usually allowed in the regular courses. Below is a simple explanation about these courses.

Japanese Language Teachers Training Course:
Its aim is to convey the basic information and techniques necessary for teachers of the Japanese language. It is useful for anyone who wishes to become a Japanese language teacher in the future or for those who are currently teaching Japanese but want to make sure they are using correct teaching methods. The course consists of about 30 lectures held over a period of 5 months and its program includes opportunities for actual teaching practice in Japanese language classrooms. It is suitable for both Egyptians and Japanese people. Egyptians who wish to join this course must have passed Level 2 of the old Japanese Language Proficiency Test or N2 in the new Test, or have attained a level equal to or higher than it.
The Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) has been offered by the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services (JEES) since 1984 as a reliable means to evaluate and certify the Japanese proficiency of non-native speakers. In 2012, there were as many as 610,000 applicants throughout the world. It is the largest Japanese-language test in the world. It is the largest Japanese-language test in the world. The JLPT is widely recognized across corporate and government sectors as a benchmark for proficiency measurement. Over time, test applicants became diversified, and use of JLPT results has expanded. Therefore, the Japan Foundation and Japan Educational Exchanges and Services introduced a revised version of the test in 2010 to ensure the continuing relevancy and accuracy of the JLPT. This new test takes full advantage of the most advanced research in Japanese pedagogy and testing theory. The JLPT is held once a year in Egypt, usually on the first Sunday in December in Cairo.
