Program Overview

Program Description:

Become fluent in Japanese as you live and study in the heart of this unique and lively Asian culture.

A land of four main islands (and more than 6,000 smaller ones), Japan has many common denominators: noodle stands on nearly every corner (ramen or udon — take your pick!), top-notch public transportation, and super-friendly people who are polite and eager to help others — foreigners included. Five days a week, you’ll experience life at a public or private high school, in classes taught solely in Japanese. Fully immersed in teen life, lingo, and both traditional and pop culture, you’ll make huge strides in language proficiency before you know it. On weekends, enjoy the company of your host family! Spend time playing games, eating delicious home-cooked food, or visiting local shrines and temples.

Program fee includes international airfare and iNext travel insurance. Full inclusions are found on our website.
