Please consult with them about the credits they will potentially grant you for the classes you take while abroad.

Hey Rin! You don't need to be fluent in Japanese but a bit of prior experience is required just to make your program successful. The requirement is that you need to have at least 1 year of Japanese language instruction OR a level 4 on the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). If you've taken Japanese for 1 year you'd qualify! Even if you're not yet fluent :)
