    If you are serious about studying Japanese language at MHCC, the best plan recommended is to take JPN101 in fall, JPN102 in winter, JPN103 in spring, a Japanese course in summer if available, JPN201 in the following fall, JPN202 in winter, and JPN203 in spring. Plan to participate in the summer study abroad in Japan (and take INTL210) after you finish JPN103 or JPN203. This will prepare you well to move on to the third year Japanese at a four-year university and to do a long-term study abroad in Japan. It is important that you take all these courses one after another without any break in between or it is very likely that you will have to retake the course you took the last before moving on to the next level.
