The English courses taught by The Language Center are part of the University's general education curriculum. When it was established in 2006, the Center offered the compulsory "Basic English" course (6 credits) lasting one academic year and "Advanced English" (4 credits) a one semester course. In 2008, the Center revised the curriculum into Freshman English (4 credits) and Sophomore English (4 credits), both required courses. In addition, in 2011, the Center began offering “Remedial Foreign Language Skills” classes to meet the needs of students through to their graduation.
Beginning in 2013, sophomore students at the higher intermediate level of English were able to choose between the “daily English module” and the “workplace English module”. The following year, the Center recruited students with a higher English proficiency to participate in the six-hour per week course "Elite English I," instead of the first-year basic English course. The content of the Elite course focused on training students for the IELTS exam to develop the language skills necessary for overseas studies as exchange students. The Center also began offering a one-semester "Elite English II" course the next year (2014), which will exempt students from taking Sophomore English.
In order to meet the future needs of students in the workplace, commencing 2018 the Sophomore English course began to focus exclusively on Workplace English, while Freshman English maintained its focus on daily English, and from the present school year (2020), the name of the freshman English course was officially changed Daily English to better express the course content. Likewise, in 2021, the name of the sophomore English course will be Workplace English. Thus, the courses of The Language Center account for eight out of the ten credits of the daytime students' general language proficiency courses, accounting for about 27% of the total General Education credits of the University.
Since its inception, The Language Center has offered a growing number of 2-credit elective courses in Japanese and Japanese tourism, German, Spanish, and English Conversation, later adding French, Vietnamese language and culture, Malay language and culture, Korean and other foreign language courses, expanding the students' multicultural opportunities. Over the past six academic years from 2020, The Language Center has expanded its offerings to include elective courses in advanced practical English, such as "Workplace English," "Design, Cultural, and Creative English," "Presentation English", "News English: Listening," "Technology English," "Advertising and Marketing English," "Travel English" and "Tourism English." Since 2018, the Center has also been offering a variety of short-term courses to diversify the students' options.
Originally, foreign language courses totaled 4 credits for night school, students, representing about 14% of the General Education requirement. However, by the 2020 school year, English Courses increased to 8 credits, accounting for nearly 29% or one third of their total General Education requirement.
Since 2006, the Center offered compulsory Freshman English (2 credits), lasting one academic year, and Advanced English (2 credits), a one semester course. To fulfill the students’ workplace needs, the general English courses were modified from 6 to 4 credits per year. The classes were named “Foreign Language” and “Second/Foreign Language”. The “Foreign Language” courses were divided into English and Japanese modules, which students selected according to their needs. Beginning in 2021, the Center will modify the “Foreign Language” classes into “Basic English” for freshman and “Practical English” for sophomores.
Since its inception, The Language Center has offered 2-credit elective courses in Japanese, German, and Advanced English Conversation. In 2015, the Center added “Korean Language and Culture.” Two years later, the Center created two more elective courses, “Tourism Japanese” and “Tourism English." In 2018, the Center further expanded its offerings to include Spanish, Vietnamese language and culture, and Korean, increasing the students' language learning opportunities.
