Language learning is at the heart of our program. Mori no Ike has specialized curriculum in place for both the credit program and the one or two-week small language groups.
The one-week villagers participate in a task-based curriculum. With your small group, you will select a group of characters and a task you would like to complete. Your sensei will guide you through the language structures and vocabulary needed to complete your task. We use a different cultural theme each year. The themes include: modern and historical Japan, rural and urban Japan and relationships.
The one-week youth exploration program is open to all proficiency levels, ages 7-15.
