The study was intended to determine the effectiveness of blended learning as a mode of delivering Japanese language lessons to learners from selected Universities in the Philippines. It was found out that after taking up the one-semester Japanese Language Course, many learners from both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs possessed a good language proficiency level in writing and speaking. Many learners even agreed that there are advantages of blended learning when applied in the teaching of the Japanese language and culture. Some learners even suggested that in applying blended learning, the integration of songs and self-constructed conversation activities be implemented to make learning more meaningful and interesting. It was then concluded that a one semester Japanese language course may produce a convincing Japanese language proficiency level whether or not blended learning is applied. Nevertheless, a higher level of language proficiency is possible should blended learning be applied. As part of the research output, it is recommended that blended learning be considered as an alternative mode of teaching foreign language.
