What should I do in this situation?

Back to "FACE program"

What should I do if my wife/ husband wants to study Japanese?

First of all, the spouses of international students and foreign researchers of the University of Tokyo can participate in some of the Japanese classes conducted by Center for Japanese language education. The application period is in April and October every year. There are also Japanese classes offered in many departments. Please inquire in your department.

If you live far from campus, we also recommend finding a volunteer group near your home. We can provide you some information on such volunteer groups.

You can still participate in FACE at the same time, if you wish.

It seems a lot different from the kind of interaction I had in mind.

Even if you discussed what you will do together at the beginning, after spending some time together, you may find differences in what you and your volunteer were expecting from this program. Circumstances may change, too. As you get to know each other well, you may want to do some other things together. The place to meet may change from Lounge to volunteer's home, or you might go out together for some events. Such changes are favorable, but if you feel some changes unfavorable, or want to change in some other way, the best thing to do is to talk about it frankly. As long as you can let them know that it is essential for you to continue a good relationship with them, you can solve the problem by discussion in many cases.

If you find it difficult to solve the problems by yourselves, please talk to us. We will try to work things out together.
