There’s a reason why gap year Japanese immersion programs in Japan are so popular: it’s the centre of technology, fashion, history, cuisine and culture, and there are no friendlier or more helpful people than the Japanese. Students flock to Japan for an exotic adventure and leave feeling like they’ve gained a second home.
Doing a gap year language course in Japan is the perfect way to really delve deep into learning Japanese and give yourself the time to develop your skills in a real-world context. You’ll meet other students from all over the world as you browse rows upon rows of manga in comic shops, slurp noodles together in ramen bars and sing karaoke during Tokyo’s electric evenings. A gap year in Japan is a guaranteed good time and a priceless asset to your future.
