The Linguistics and Culture in Japan program takes students into the fascinating world of Japan. Program participants will learn about the Japanese language from a linguistics perspective, and by living with/befriending Japanese university students, they will immerse themselves in Japanese culture in a new way. By the end of the program, students will have acquired the skills to navigate through unfamiliar environments, and will learn to see both themselves and the world in a new light.
