The purpose of this public organization is to train specialists for facilitating business development in Uzbekistan, to enhance mutual understanding and strengthen friendly relations between the two countries through communicating various information and introducing the culture and language of Japan to the people in Uzbekistan who show keen interest in this country.

Japanese Language Courses

The number of people interested in Japanese language learning is increasing day by day. According to the survey conducted by UJC in 2005, the total number of students of Japanese Language in Uzbekistan is 1668. It can be said that "the boom" of studying Japanese, which occurred in mid 1990s all over the world, is still continuing in Uzbekistan.

Our activities consist of following three components:

* Events for Japanese language students

Computer Courses for Deaf and Hearing Impaired Persons

Computer Courses for deaf and hearing impaired persons were organized for the first time by the Uzbekistan-Japan Center in cooperation with the Deaf Association of Uzbekistan at the end of January, 2005.

The main purpose of these courses is to provide deaf and hearing impaired persons with the opportunity to study computer literacy and popular office software, graphic editors as well as web-design and network essentials. This knowledge can help such people to obtain new or change their current work to more perspective and well-paid one because in present conditions computer skills are often required to get employed. Such kind of training is unique in Uzbekistan and we discovered a significant demand for it.

Four levels of courses are conducted; the duration of each course is 3 months or 108 hours totally (3 times a week, each lesson lasts for 3 hours). According to our experience, the majority of participants can obtain relevant skills and can successfully work with popular computer software.
