Reviews from the participaints
I liked school the best because it was a great experience to see how different cultures go about their school life. The Tour Leader was very nice and professional, the food they served was great. Konan Gakuen was the best experience overall because it led me to understand how Japanese students learn. I wished the program was longer!
The best thing that happen to was when I got to go the high school because I've always wanted to go to a Japanese high school and I got to meet a lot of nice people.They were really nice and caring that made me feel I'm right at home also I could depend on them if I needed help. Currently I'm taking Japanese class at the high school and I plan to continue through all high school.
I liked Okinawa the best. Going to school and making new friends was an amazing experience. I wish I got to stay longer and see more of Okinawa though. The tour leader was very nice and helpful and very easy to talk to. I really wish to stay in Okinawa a bit longer to experience and learn more deeply. This was one of my best experiences to have abroad and this made me to attend Japanese classes every week.
The Home Stay experience was very unique because it allowed me to live with a Japanese Family in Okinawa. The school program was excellent to learn about the Japanese Culture and Tradition, which I was mostly interested in.
It was interesting seeing how different Japanese and American schools are. I really liked the teachers and the students. They were very polite, and it was fun talking to them. I felt like I was one of the schools student and part of the class.
Reviews from the parents
It was a spectacular experience to have my son to learn about Japanese culture that cannot be easily accessible in the United States. He is showing more discipline and became to use Japanese in his daily life.
Having a good relationship with the host family was very meaningful. Having a personal network outside the country is always a special opportunity. I think our family will visit Japan more often and Okinawa is definitely one of our destinations!
Before they were nervous because of the language barrier and having to do things on their own. After they seem more confident about doing things on their own.
