Japanese Language & Culture

          Conducted in English

In this course, students will rapidly develop a basic command of Japanese while being introduced to various aspects of Japanese history and culture.  Conversation and writing will be taught in Romaji (Romanized Japanese) as well as Hiragana and Katakana (Japanese syllabaries), depending on the student’s entering level.  Students will travel on-site to historical and cultural landmarks throughout Tokyo, adding to their understanding of the Japanese language and identity. This course is for beginner Japanese language students (no prior experience necessary). 

The course also includes a culture program with a four-night stay at a seaside retreat, a visit to the largest Buddha in Japan, a Matsuri performance with taiko drumming and a barbecue to follow, a trip to Studio Ghibli, live Sumo action, and more.

Note: Group Airfare will be arranged for this program. ​​​
