Overall Experience
I learned to take care of my own problems quite a bit. I also learned a lot about interacting with people from other cultures. I expected to do so with Japanese people, but even more so I met and befriended a number of international students from around the world. It was definitely a worthwhile experience. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Past Review Magical
I improved my Japanese greatly and learned more about Japanese culture than I ever thought I would. I wished I had spent less time in a classroom and more time out exploring and meeting new people. In the future I would like to return to Japan and get that sort of experience. - Pitzer College View Entire Review

My study abroad experience was absolutely worth while. I would do it all again if I could, and I wish I could stay longer than a year. This truly feels like my home now.

I really enjoyed my experience abroad and if I could, I would do it again. I definitely feel like my language skills greatly improved, especially my listening skills.

If anything, I even feel more motivated ... - University of the Pacific View Entire Review

Past Review Expensive
I learned a lot of language skills and cultural things about Japan. In that aspect it was worth it,but I wish I had chose somewhere else. - San Jose State University View Entire Review
Yes, it was worthwhile. Experiencing another culture and perspective was fun and challenging. - Nebraska Wesleyan University View Entire Review
While I learned a little in the classes, just living here helped me learn a lot. Cliche as it is, living in another country for some time kicks you forcefully out of your comfort zone and that experience is amazing. It's tough, it's not what you expect, and it makes you react. For me, that's awesome, to some it scares the hell o... - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
I think what really made this study abroad experience worthwhile was my host family. They were all I could ask for in a host family, and I wouldn't have traded them for any other host family or dorm/apartment stay. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Yes. I have been to Japan a handful of times and homestayed twice before but staying here long term helped me learn a lot more. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Yes, I loved Japan, and I learned so much of the language and culture there! I am even thinking about going back to Japan to work there for the rest of my life after finishing school, - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
It was great! I loved being able to make friends with locals and also with other students from the US as well as other countries around the world. Some classes were truly meetings of the minds and it was really nice to hear from different people, each with a different take on the world. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
