The goal of the course is not simply to provide an introduction to Mount Fuji in English; it is to prepare you to be able to provide an introduction to Mount Fuji (and the surrounding area) in English. In other words, we will be preparing you to talk to people about the area: the geography, the people and so on. There are huge numbers of tourists coming to this area these days so we really do expect you to have opportunities to use the skills you develop on this course.
