Many full time students take classes full time during the academic year and spend their summers relaxing or working to save money for the upcoming school year. In order to preserve, enhance, or add to the information they have already learned, some students choose to take summer courses.

What is a summer course?  The name itself denotes that it is a course the typically takes place during the summer. These courses are typically offered by colleges, universities and other schools around the world. Some summer courses benefit students with additional knowledge that will assist them in a future career. Other courses also provide credits toward a higher level degree.

There are many expected and unexpected benefits for those who enroll in a summer course. Gaining more knowledge and keeping current with career enhancing skills are among those benefits that students expect. What individuals may not expect is that taking a summer course often preserves valuable knowledge and study skills, making the return to school much easier at the summer’s end.

Because there is much variation in the types and levels of summer courses that are available, the costs of the courses may also vary. For example, a summer course in fashion, taken through a community college may cost much less than a summer engineering course taken from a four-year university. Contacting individual schools to get information about tuition costs is strongly advised.

Almost any current or future career can be enhanced when one invests time into a summer course. Those who are still in school gain the benefit of not losing ground on the things they have learned during the school year. Their study habits may also be better than those students who do no studying during the summer months. Individuals that are already employed in a career may also benefit by learning more job skills by taking a short summer course.

 

The most important part of taking a summer course is to make the decision that your ongoing education is important. Once the decision is made, you can search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

(Open to students at all proficiency levels)

This action-oriented course makes the most of the short-term study abroad environment by focusing on the situations that students encounter while in Japan. Depending on the level of proficiency, students will either learn basic grammatical structures and vocabulary or reinforce and fully utilize previously studied grammar while expanding vocabulary to accomplish more challenging communicative goals. Interaction with Japanese students is emphasized.In this course, students will learn to use the language to achieve actual communicative goals in Japanese. Examples of the situations that call for the use of various linguistic forms are introducing oneself (e.g., at an international party, to a Japanese family), exchanging useful information on the neighborhood and surrounding towns, getting around & using public transportation, solving communication-related problems, describing cultural artifacts & asking questions, talking about events, inviting someone to outings, talking about customs, manners, cultural differences, one’s hometown, etc. with a Japanese family, and so on.Students with differing degrees of proficiency in Japanese will work toward the achievement of the goals set according to their level, keeping “can-do statements” in mind. Volunteer students whose native language is Japanese are brought in to work with summer program participants for both language support and authentic interaction in Japanese. Students are encouraged to make the most of various resources available on campuses such as a JSL resource center and the Writing Support Center. Final grades will be given based on quizzes, class participation, and homework/assignments. Students’ self-evaluation of the degree to which they... [-]
