The GENGO Centre of Japanese Language and Culture was set up at MSLU with assistance from the Embassy of Japan and the "Japan – Russia" Society.

The Centre

  • Educates and informs the Russian and international public;
  • Disseminates information about Japan: its language, culture, civic achievements, etc.;
  • Promotes learning Japanese with the help of modern methods and technologies;
  • Cooperates with the Embassy of Japan in Russia, with academic and non-governmental organisations on issues relating to research, teaching, communication, culture, etc.

For this purpose, the Centre conducts conferences and workshops on a broad range of Japanese studies, Russian-Japanese relations and methods of teaching Japanese. It also hosts meetings with experts specialising in different aspects of public and cultural life in the two countries, and other cultural events.

The Centre offers paid courses of Japanese taught by the University's skilled academic staff for different student levels: from pre-admission cramming for those entering the MSLU Translation and Interpreting Faculty to groups for beginners and continuing learners of Japanese.
