The U.S. and Japan: Uniting the nations through language
U.S. Embassy Tokyo grant program
In Japan, there are a great number of students who seek for chances to practice their English skills and are also willing to connect with students in the U.S.
We look for students residing in the U.S. (class or schoolwide participation) who are eager to interact with other students internationally, and are looking for an opportunity to practice their Japanese. If you are a Japanese language teacher teaching in the U.S., come join our program to provide your students with a virtual, cross-cultural, and inter lingual learning experience!
Our ambitions are not only to uplift the students’ learning motivation respectively, but also aim for our participants to gain a deeper understanding of each other’s cultural and social characteristics. With support and funding from the U.S. Embassy Tokyo, our goal is to establish a strong relationship between the younger generations of Japan and the U.S., with hopes to contribute to the forever globalizing world we live in today.
