This article is a continuation of our previous works published under the names Ota, Sato and Fujita in 2014 and 2015. We have further improved our collaborative class, which combines physics and the Japanese language. This class is within the framework of the pre­tertiary Japan-Korea joint educational exchange program. We also assessed the result of the questionnaire carried out immediately after the course finished, and compared the 2014 and 2015 surveys. The survey result shows that 76% of our Korean students positively assessed the improved class. We assume that percentage to be still at a high level, although it did indicate a drop of four points when compared to the 2015 data. In this survey, we also could observe that intermediate-level Japanese proficiency students tended to view the improved collaborative class as having performed effectively whereas some of elementary and advanced-level Japanese proficiency students replied negatively with comments such as : "I want to learn ordinary vocabulary instead". In order for students to be able to sufficiently comprehend the content related to physics and to be able to reply orally to questions, we concluded that students would need to be able to read kanji more precisely. To achieve this goal, we will need to arrange the various levels of difficulty for kanji and then match the class materials and forms according to the appropriate kanji proficiency level. We would like to collocate the vocabulary in a balanced order : from ordinary to advanced level.
