Campus Full time 4 weeks June 2018 Japan Tokyo

Drawing upon our vast experience in combining language and culture in multi-level classes, this course provides an opportunity to experience Japanese culture first hand with Japanese students. [+]

(Open to students at all proficiency levels)

Drawing upon our vast experience in combining language and culture in multi-level classes, this course provides an opportunity to experience Japanese culture first hand with Japanese students through activities such as playing traditional musical instruments, calligraphy, cooking, visiting JFOU club activities while improving their Japanese language skills. This course is designed to help students improve their language skills through five to six activities focusing on aspects of Japanese culture and society. Each “experiential activity” consists of three phases: “Preparation,” “Experiential Activity” and “Feedback.” Two to three class meetings will be spent on one activity. Typically, one class meeting is allocated to each of the “Preparation” and “Experiential Activity” phases. The preparation involves learning words and expressions as well as learning or reviewing grammatical items to be used in a particular activity. The “experiential activity” is the actual experience. Volunteer students whose native language is Japanese are brought in to work with summer program participants in these class meetings for both language support and authentic interaction in Japanese. After each activity, students write a short report according to their proficiency level. At the end of the course, students will conduct further research on one of the activities (topics) experienced earlier in the course and write a report in Japanese, which should be accompanied by a portfolio. Depending on the number of students, students will give an oral presentation as well.... [-]
