CIEE is a not-for-profit organization governed by a consortium of 270 universities and other institutions of higher learning. We offer semester, academic-year, and summer Japanese language immersion programs. All of CIEE's semester and year-long programs for high school students include intensive language study through enrollment in a local high school, a home-stay, and cultural excursions. Students should be able to demonstrate basic written and oral communication skills to participate in the semester/academic year program. No prior language is required for the summer program. Gap-year programs in Japan are also offered.
