J.F. Oberlin University Summer Intensive Japanese Program (Japanese University Program)

J.F. Oberlin University's Summer Intensive Language Program is a one-month content-based language program held at the Oberlin campus in the suburbs of Tokyo. Classes at novice high to intermediate levels meet three hours a morning, five days a week. In addition, students expand language skills in cultural activities (taiko drumming, calligraphy, tea ceremony and cooking) taught in Japanese two afternoons a week. Lectures on Japanese history, social issues, and cross-cultural communication are planned, as well as excursions to downtown Tokyo and the historic city of Kamakura.

Students applying to the program should be in good standing at one of J.F. Oberlin's affiliated universities. Students are expected to have completed one year of university Japanese or the equivalent.

The program fee of 225,000 - 240,000 yen includes courses, domestic transportation, housing, and airport pick-up/return, but not meals, international airfare, or insurance.

Program dates for 2013 are May 21 - June 19. The deadline for applying for this program is February 15, 2013. Application forms are available online at https://www.obirin-cis.com/FS-APL/FS-Form/form.cgi?Code=Application_SS.
