Testimonial by Terry Palmer

My daughter Anabel loved attending the Japan Foundation’s summer camp in 2012. It was a unique opportunity for her to study the language and converse with native speakers in class and in the Little Tokyo community.

The students immersed themselves in the language and the culture in a creative and engaging environment. It was so impressive to see how much fun they had and how much they learned in such a short time!

I highly recommend this camp for any teen interested in Japanese language or culture.
