Study Japanese in the Home of Your Own Private Teacher in the Tokyo Region

Contemporary Tokyo is full of the strange and the fantastic – from the fashion crazed Harujuku District to Pachinko parlours and the many unusually themed cafes you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else – Dungeon Cafés, Cat Cafés, Bunny Cafés, Goat Cafés, Maid Cafés…the list goes on. Part of what makes Tokyo so exceptional is the way that it combines so many contrasting elements from its long history into a distinct, cohesive, and functional metropole. You’ll find historic fortresses, shrines, parks, and more interspersed among towering skyscrapers and other post-modern buildings. Spaces like the Meiji Shrine, which is surrounded by forest, provide enchanting and unexpected areas of tranquility in the otherwise bustling city.

There’s so much to see and experience in Tokyo that it’s hard to know where to begin, or even scratch the surface of what it has to offer by touring it in the traditional manner. The Live & Learn program offers you a unique and truly immersive way to experience this amazing city. Your host family will be able to give you guidance so that you can navigate the frenzied and futuristic streets, and they'll be able to recommend particular places of interest as they get to know you personally through your private, professional Japanese lessons. You’ll also learn that much more quickly and effectively in a place where you can consistently apply your language skills as you learn them. If you don’t have a good reason to learn a language then you won’t, but Tokyo is sure to give you more reasons to learn Japanese than you can count!
