In addition to translation and interpretation services, the institute offers holistic courses for students who wish to learn Japanese. SNRC holds a good track record of not just language training but also professional guidance to understand Japanese culture and etiquettes.
SNRC provides classes to help students clear the various levels of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). The test is usually conducted twice a year, in July and December. There are five proficiency levels of the JLPT, ranging from N5 to N1, with N5 being entry level and N1 being the most advanced certification. At SNRC training is given to clear JLPT up to level N2. JLPT is designed for non-native students wishing to learn Japanese and is recognized worldwide. At SNRC, Japanese is taught not only through English but also by comparing it to other Indian languages; it can also be taught through the student's native tongue instead of English.
