Summer Program in Japan
Kyoto International Academy (KIA)
The school, founded in 1988, provides instruction in Japanese in a warm, congenial atmosphere. It is located northwest of Kyoto. The convenient location of the school allows students to observe the culture of this most traditional city of Kyoto.
The school uses the direct method of language teaching, which means that lessons are conducted exclusively in the target language. This enables the students to think in the foreign language immediately and helps build their self-confidence. Materials for the program are critically selected by teachers of KIA.
