Voice of a participant

The Nanzan Summer Program has truly been the experience of a lifetime. I am honestly amazed by how much my Japanese has improved in just six weeks. The Japanese language course is full of fun and interesting ways to learn. At Nanzan, you won’t just be reading from a textbook, but rather you will be engaging in thought-provoking and adventurous activities that send you out into Japan. In addition, I was able to take a Japanese tea ceremony and wood block class, both of which I highly recommend to any student. I was able to eat Japanese sweets and drink tea, all the while learning about traditional Japanese culture. The staff at Nanzan are incredibly kind and understanding people, and they truly want you to have a wonderful experience. Overall, I will never forget my time here at Nanzan and I am eternally grateful to this program for vastly widening my language abilities and expanding my cultural horizon.
