International Students Wanted this Winter!!

About English Camp in Iwai Program

Kita Ward Board of Education organizes an English camp for junior high school students
(8th graders, ages 13-14 years old) who live in the Kita Ward area
in order to help them gain some experience to use English in a real setting
and improve their listening and language-speaking abilities
through interaction with international students in the cultural and outdoor activities.
The program has been held as English Summer Camp in Nasu program for 18 years and updated in 2021.
We hope that all participants: Japanese students, International students and even staff members
could enjoy and learn something new through this program.

“I have had the greatest time in all my ESC/EC programs. I get to interact with extraordinary Japanese kids and make friends with other international students and Japanese staff. The program while exhausting is at the same time extremely relaxing.”
