Japanese summer programs offer intensive language seminars and other levels of foreign language education based at universities and colleges, as part of home stays or as commuter day programs. The programs feature credit and non-credit options and travel with built-in excursions designed to enhance language abilities while imparting global perspectives. Activities include visiting with Japanese students, participating in a traditional tea ceremony, making sushi or bonsai, and adopting Japanese summer clothing stye like the yukata. From Tokyo to Kyoto and Hiroshima, students traveling abroad can explore a new language with guidance from fluent and native Japanese instructors teaching in classroom settings and providing cultural competency education.
