I selected this program because I saw a favorable review for it in my Japanese club’s newsletter, and I had been looking for a study abroad in Tokyo. I also liked how inexpensive the program was and how the offered dormitories, which few other programs did.

I really in enjoyed pair work and small groups because we were able to utilize our language skills. If we did come across something that one student might not understand, the instructor was there to clarify any questions. It also provided a good setting for getting to know my classmates better without the stress of coming up with sentences in front of the class, which can sometimes be a little nerve-wracking.

The program is very well organized and worth the investment.

Club activities and extracurricular events (such as the Cooking class) were most fun for me, as they allowed a chance to practice and enforce concepts taught in class while still enjoying the activities.

The amount of studying required is intense and you will need to study very hard. You will also need to make an effort to get out and see Japan because there is always more to be studying it can be hard to make time to see Japan but it’s part of the experience.
