Japanese courses for Teens in Kyoto : Description

During their stay in Japan, students will receive language courses at our partner school in Kyoto. This school has all the modern facilities and a group of qualified professionals in the field of education. Every year, students from all over the world join this program, as it offers structured and effective Japanese language classes as well as cultural activities with an insight into the everyday Japanese lifestyle. Language courses in Japan take place during the summer and should be requested 3 months prior to your arrival.  

Summer Japanese courses for teens

As a student of the language course (20 lessons per week - beginners welcome), you will also have the opportunity to attend 3 "Experience classes" each Saturday to discover the tea ceremony, Japanese pottery, manga drawing, cosplay courses, and more! Other activities are arranged daily on weekdays as well. 


Classes and activities may be shared with adult students, but will always be supervised by school staff. Students have a curfew in the host family and are expected to be back at the house before 11 PM at the latest.  They will travel from and to school with public transport and this is unsupervised.

About Kyoto

Kyoto is no longer the capital of Japan, but it remains the heart of the country. Kyoto is one of the best-preserved cities with a high historical value. Buddhist temples, Shinto Shrines, castles, and gardens, there is so much to see and visit in Kyoto that you will not be bored. It is a safe destination for students who want to discover more about the 'old' Japan. 

School location

The school is only a few minutes away from the wonderful Gion district, one of the oldest and most traditional places in Kyoto, if not in all of Japan. It is not uncommon to come across a Maiko (apprentice Geisha) or even a Geisha. People who visit Gion often feel as if they have entered another era when there were no cars and only people pushing you around in their carriages.
