Program Reviews:
Academic Year 2015 Participant
I think the best thing you can do when you study abroad in a non-English speaking country is to be as open-minded as possible, and use the language as much as possible. I was really embarrassed to speak Japanese when I first arrived, but it's pointless to feel that way. Wherever you are in speaking ability, use the language as much as you can and you'll improve so fast.

Spring 2013 Participant
The Classical Japanese Dance class (Spring semester) was exceptionally informative and entertaining. The teacher was very nice and eager to help students succeed in their efforts. We experienced a broad range of cultural arts.

Summer 2014 Participant
The most beneficial part of this program was being able to interact with other Japanese students in the classroom. Bringing in Japanese students who volunteered to help out by being our "conversation partners" was the one thing that helped me improve my Japanese the most.
