About Boarding School
Summer school in Japan is recommended for beginner to intermediate English learners. There are a variety of summer schools in Japan, and if it is your first time attending summer school or if you are worried about whether you will be able to keep up with the classes and activities in English, then summer school in Japan could be a great option for you.
Especially for learners worried about keeping up in English, you will be happy to know that most summer school programs in Japan have Japanese staff coordinating these programs, and they provide any support in terms of classes and daily life. Of course, classes and activities will be conducted in English, but it is comforting to know that there is someone you can talk to in Japanese if you need assistance.
In addition, when participating in summer school overseas, parents often do not take into consideration extra costs such as travel insurance, visa paperwork and so on. If you live in Japan, however, such financial burdens do not exist because the participation fee is usually all-inclusive except for pocket money. Also, since there is no time difference or loss of sleep from travelling from abroad, you should be full of energy all day, and receive a full night of sleep.
It is important to make this distinction because some people may have an impression that ‘summer school’ and ‘overseas program’ are the same, but this is not true. Especially, such programs in Japan offer a variety of options and advantages that will appeal to your needs, goals and enjoyment.
Don’t let travel restrictions due to the ongoing coronavirus spoil your summer plans. An opportunity to visit a new city, make new friends, sightsee and improve your English skills is possible right here in Japan! So, this coming summer why not attend summer school in Japan to immerse yourself in international education and take the first step towards your bright future?
