I learned so much here and I have become so comfortable in Japan that I really don't want to go home.

The lecture we had on Japanese Psychology was definitely my favorite because it helped me better understand how and why Japanese people think the way they do.

Class trips were always good team building experiences.

Steven from 2012

I thought everything was interesting and productive.

Sadao from 2012

I loved that in class, everyone was required to try and speak Japanese. It can be nerve racking speaking a new language in front of people you hardly know. So it enables you to find courage so that you may be able to speak it in any situation.

You live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It's great!

Valerie from 2012

Every now and again, you have to switch to your mother tongue — it’s inevitable. However, if it wasn’t for studying in that kind of intensive setting that forces you to think in the language, I probably wouldn’t have advanced as far as I did in Japanese.

Be willing to work hard.

Jessica from 2012

It is a program for students who seriously want to put a lot of effort into learning Japanese, but also remember to have fun while you are here as time flies by really fast.
