Sun Academy Nihongo Center offers this rigorous program only for Yale students.  Curriculum and textbooks are selected through close consultation with Yale Japanese instructors.  Small class sizes, with an average of just four or five students. Small overall program size (typically 15 or fewer total) makes the program intimate and personalized. Buddy program connects Sun Academy students with local university students for classes, activities, and other outings. Typically half-time homestay provides another element of social immersion.  Please note the duration of the homestay is subject to change at the program's discretion.

A great program for students who will be proactive about using their free time well. Tokyo offers endless opportunities to explore various cultural scenes. May not be a strong choice for someone who would prefer regimented extracurricular events, or someone who would enjoy making connections with students from other universities.
