I don’t think there was a single moment that wasn’t productive for me. There was something to learn from everything during my time in Japan. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!

What I like most about this program is the fact that there are multiple teachers for each class. This enables the students to benefit from each teacher’s style of teaching rather than only being exposed to one. I also like how interactive the classes are.

I'm a bit shy, so I didn't make too many friends, and having the opportunity to practice Japanese in a practical speaking sense was very helpful!

The U.S. Culture Class — getting the chance to go outside of the school-to-dorm bubble was absolutely invaluable to me as somebody who didn’t apply for a homestay, and the lectures, especially those by non-faculty, gave me a breadth of information that certainly piqued my interest in the history of Japan.
