Get to know the people, customs, and language of Japan through this intensive one-month immersion program. You’ll attend 4 hours of Japanese classes each day, and then engage in a unique cultural exchange by living with a local host family.

After your language lessons, you’ll have the chance to explore Japanese art, food, and society by participating in group activities and taking sight-seeing trips to nearby historic locations. Your classes will be small (about 5-12 people) and organized by skill level, so you can expect plenty of individualized instruction.
