Japanese dramas

I learned in English watching the show Friends when I was in Japan every day for at least 30 minutes. If you are committed to learn a language, you have to expose yourself listening to the language EVERY DAY. It's really a bummer we cannot have language classes every day in Utah.

These are the Japanese dramas I recommend to watch.

Study abroad to Japan

Many of you have asked me about study abroad programs. The one that my students have attended and really enjoyed is the one related to BYU for American high school students. Check their website below.

http://www.mikuniinternational.org/us-high-school-study-abroad-program-in-japan/

The dates for travel around the country will be the last week of the trip—Sunday, July 23rd to Saturday, July 29.

How much does it cost?

Total program cost for the program is $3900.
This covers the cost of all travel (including the JR Pass and the flights to and from Japan) as well as food, lodging, texts, and teachers for all four weeks of the program.
Payments can be made through check, credit/debit card, or PayPal to Mikuni International College.

What about my plane ticket? (NEW INFORMATION)

New for 2017: Roundtrip airfare to and from Japan is included in the total price of the program. Mikuni International will book your flights. This is for flights originating in the US. If you are originating somewhere else, please contact us and we will make individual arrangements with you.
Sometimes students have traveling (airfare) benefits such as their parents’ mileage or employee benefits.  If this is the case, please feel free to contact us and we’ll work with you on individual arrangements.
