Immersion course in Japan

There's no better way to hone your Japanese language skills than to enrol in an immersion course in Japan. Whether you stay for just a few weeks or even a year, this is the way to get confident speaking Japanese. Our immersion courses help you gain proficiency quickly, all while exploring the sights and culture of Japan! Your Japanese friends will be shocked to hear you eloquently order dinner and read subway signs with ease. But that's the secret of success in our immersion course: in-class study combined with real-life opportunities in Japan to apply those lessons. Who can argue with that?

Choosing the right accommodations

Now you are ready to plow full-steam ahead in planning your immersion course in Japan. The next question is, where should you stay? We have two accommodation options to suit your needs. The first is a homestay, which allows you to fully immerse yourself in Japanese language and culture by living with a local family. Start your day off with a steaming bowl of homemade miso soup while using the skills learned in your immersion course to communicate with your Japanese hosts. If you prefer more independence, then stay in one of our centrally-located apartments, where you can enjoy modern amenities and make new friends from around the world.
