Study abroad programs in Japan

Tokyo is an enormous city consisting of many unique neighborhoods, which will become second nature to you when you study abroad in Japan. Visit the Imperial Palace in Hibiya, or browse high-end designer stores in Ginza. Are you learning Japanese to use in business? Then head to Nihombashi and visit the Tokyo Stock Exchange. You'll be able to find just about any electronic gadget imaginable in Akihabara, or experience the city's nightlife in Shinjuku. Each part of Tokyo is vibrant in its own way, making it easy to find local haunts that suit your tastes when you study in Japan.

Japanese study abroad programs

Study Japanese abroad to take in the language at a comfortable pace in an environment where you can speak with confidence. Our focus on communication along with small classes make learning easy. Moreover, Japanese citizens are pleased to find that foreigners are interested in the Japanese language - just one more reason to study Japanese abroad.

How to study abroad in Japan

When you study abroad in Japan, you'll be able to choose between living with a local host family or staying in a student residence. You'll enjoy authentic, home-cooked meals during a homestay, with the added bonus of having the opportunity to practice the language skills you've learned while you study abroad in Japan. Your host family can give you tips on the neighborhood and activities, giving you an insider's view of Japan. A student residence is also a good choice, as you'll have a bit more independence and live with other students from around the world. Either way, you'll be sure to live in an stimulating environment as you study abroad in Japan and begin to make it home.

Japanese study abroad programs

You'll improve your language skills and experience life in Japan when you study Japanese abroad. Experienced teachers use communication exercises to boost your confidence when using the language, and if you study Japanese abroad, you can transfer what you've learned from inside the classroom to the streets of Tokyo. You'll speak the language with native speakers who can give you insight into their culture and take you places that tourists never visit. You'll improve your linguistic proficiency and have a deep cultural experience when you study Japanese abroad.

Japanese at home

You can choose either a homestay or a student residence for accommodation while you study Japanese abroad. The former option places you with a Japanese family. You will practice speaking Japanese with them, share meals, and learn about Japanese culture. If you decide to stay in the student residence while you study Japanese abroad, you will most likely spend more time with the international students on your program. The student residence is centrally located, close to the school for your convenience. Whichever accommodation option you choose when you study Japanese abroad, you'll have an amazing experience.
