Japanese Language as an Organizational Barrier for International Students to Access to University Services: A Case of Aoyama Gakuin University
Hiratsuka, Hiroyoshi
Journal of International Students, v6 n4 p956-966 2016
In 2011, Aoyama Gakuin University (AGU) started a government-funded degree program (taught in English) to accept international students with limited or no Japanese language proficiency. However, the students faced obstacles in accessing all of the university resources provided. In this article, I investigated Japanese language as an organizational barrier for students accessing to campus resources. I utilized the case study methodology through participatory observation on campus and face-to-face interviews.
