Drew Kocour, Summer 2017 Participant
My host family was the highlight of this trip. They were incredibly hospitable, and very kind. I legitimately feel like I now have a second family in Japan, and I can't wait till I get to see them again.

The best thing to do with this program is to not get swamped with the work. Dr. Childs is really flexible with the workload due dates because she knows that it's more important to be out and about, exploring the country, instead of being stuck in your room doing homework.

I found my home stay to be a very rewarding experience, as I got to experience every-day Japanese life with my wonderful host parents as well as practice my Japanese.
