Teen Program

Enjoy the summer in Japan!

A great number of students from across the globe has studied Japanese language at KAI Japanese Language School since its foundation in 1987. Drawing from our wealth of experience, KAI has put together a fun and enriching summer junior program where students can immerse themselves fully in the Japanese language and culture. Sign up for our program to spend the best summer of your life learning Japanese, and experiencing traditional and pop Japanese culture!

What’s great about the Program?

Full support

After arriving at Narita or Haneda airport, you will be free from care. Our staff will make arrangements for transportation between accommodations, classrooms and activities. They will stay with you at the same accommodations to provide support and ensure your safety.

Almost all inclusive package

Besides Japanese lessons, the program package includes daily activities (including weekends), accommodations, breakfasts, lunches and dinners, airport transfer and everyday transfer, etc. Please be aware that drinks and personal expenses are not included.

Great experience

Over the 2 – 3 week program, you will learn how to great people and introduce yourself in Japanese, as well as be equipped with the essential skills to hold basic conversations you can use at restaurants and shops. In addition, through our carefully planned activities and your stay in Tokyo, you will learn to appreciate real Japanese culture and society, which we believe will be a great long-lasting experience for you.

Effective Lessons

This program is designed to steadfastly improve your conversation skills in a fun and enjoyable manner. A lot of time is set aside for speaking exercises in each class. You will be amazed at how much Japanese you can speak after a short period of 2 – 3 weeks.


During the program, you will participate in various kinds of activities to experience both traditional and modern Japanese culture. The activities will be fun and you will be very well-versed in Japan after completing the program. Please refer to our website for more details on the activities.
