Like the past summer programs, participants will work on digital media productions in small groups. It is the program’s goal to enhance participants’ cross-cultural understanding and improve their communication skills by having both English and Japanese native speakers in group activities together.
Participants will take English as a Second Language (ESL) or Japanese as a Second Language (JSL) classes.
They will learn their target languages and have opportunities to use those languages through various activities and dormitory life. There will also be many activities lined up, such as dance, cross-cultural events, field trips to Broadway musical, etc.
In addition, the summer program 2013 will incorporate new initiatives based on the feedback we have received from the past 4 years. As with last year, we will extend the program participation to American high school students. Also, a limited number of commuter participant slots will be available. Generally, the commuter participants will join the program after breakfast and will be picked up by their parents after dinner. The program will also offer a variety of elective classes, such as literature, history and culture. This year’s summer program is developed so that the participants can experience the unique bilingual, bi-cultural learning environment offered at Keio Academy of New York.
The application is accepted only online beginning mid-January 2013.
