I learned a lot about myself, daily lifestyle of the Japanese, and a lot of Japanese. I gained many memories, experiences, and a family. It was most definitely worthwhile. - Austin College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Nagoya - Nanzan University
The experiences I had through the IES field trips and my own personal travels in Japan were by far the best thing about my time in Japan. I got to see historical sites and the natural beauty of the country. Kyoto was the best. If you can go to Kyoto, go. Go right now. Also, my language skills at the end of the program were... - Austin College View Entire Review
Because I spoke so little Japanese when I arrived in Japan, I learned to quickly adapt to new situations, even when I did not entirely understand what was happening. I learned to befriend people from a very different culture than my own and to appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of each culture.

I learned nothing new when it came to the language and culture. The only plus side during my stay in Japan was going to concerts and meeting bands. - Austin College View Entire Review

Of course it was worthwhile. I have made a ton of friends and wonderful memories. If anything I would try to pick the Tokyo program to see if maybe they can offer a better academic experience. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I made a lot of new friends and learned a lot about living in a foreign country while abroad. It was so much fun and definitely worthwhile! - Santa Clara University View Entire Review
The whole trip was worthwhile to be able to stay with such an awesome host family, and IES was super amazing and took me to many sites. Those two things really made my experience in Japan special. - Austin College View Entire Review
I gained not only academic improvement but also friendship - Brandeis University View Entire Review
My knowledge of Japanese history, cultural practices, and religion expanded tremendously over my abroad experience greatly - Wesleyan University View Entire Review
Studying abroad was definitely worth it. Being on my own in a completely foreign culture forced me to adapt and negotiate with my surroundings. It was difficult to be so far from my family and friends, and even more challenging to face racism for the first time, but the friendships I made and the experiences I had in Japan made ... - Tufts University View Entire Review
