Japanese Pronunciation

The Japanese Pronunciation Training (JPT) is free and designed for self-directed learners who are interested in improving their Japanese pronunciation or gaining knowledge of teaching foreign languages. The training will be provided through online and you will be able to take it at your own pace.

The training covers (1) Basics, (2) Challenging Sounds, and (3) Intonation. Each takes less than 1 hour in length. So the full training will take up to 3 hours. You can come back to the saved point anytime.

Upon the completion of this training, you will receive a certificate of completion when you meet all of the completion requirement.

Note. The Japanese Pronunciation Training program has won the 2023 Excellence and Innovation in the Integration of Technology in Higher Education from the Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE).
