An important note for the AP Japanese Language and Culture community: The College Board is pleased to announce financial assistance to Japanese instructors to participate in a full day AP Japanese Language and Culture workshop on Thursday, November 19, 2015, which will be held in conjunction with the annual conference of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) in San Diego, CA.

An updated AP Japanese Language and Culture Course Description is now available. Minor wording changes were made for clarity, and information related to College Board resources was updated to reflect current terminology (e.g., electronic discussion groups are now called Online Teacher Communities). The content of the course and exam has not changed.
