Summer Course was a really good experience! I did not only study Japanese, but also learned a lot about Japanese culture. I came to the ISI Summer Course alone but I am leaving with many international friends from all over the world. The teachers in ISI are all really kind and helped us so much. This was an experience that I will never forget.

We had many fun teachers, and it was fun to learn! I got many new friends from all over the world, from America, Holland, Thailand and many others! The activities let me see more of the Japanese culture and took me to the places that I would not have gone if I had not been on this program! I made lots of memories for my life time!
