At Kudan Institute of Japanese Language and Culture,「Homestay」is prepared as a means of accommodation for our students. Japanese language skills are firstly improved while staying with a Japanese family. Also, through everyday meals and living the day-to-day life with a host family, you will be able to personally experience Japanese culture itself.
As your coordinator, I would like to introduce the family that suits you.

What do you think about your choice of choosing to stay with a host family?
I enjoy a lot. Whenever I have some troubles, my host family helps me out wholeheartedly. They treat me just as like their own family. I not only learn about my studies in school, but they also teach me so warmly about life itself. On our days off, we eat sushi, make okonomiyaki, and go sightseeing to many places during the summer holidays. I now not only understand the Japanese language, but Japanese culture as well.
What can you say to those students thinking about trying homestay?
Don’t think twice, just give it a try!
