From well organized and thrilling learning and out of class adventurous sessions, to meeting new people (very happy Japanese students) and making friends, it was nothing short of a beautiful experience. It is certainly an opportunity you would not want to miss out!”

Anthony from Philippines 🇵🇭

“The English Camp program organised by Taka was really fun and enjoyable. I think I as a captain enjoyed more like students. We are not teachers but we are friends, that was the main theme. There were my group members who were crying at the end during farewell. I will join more English Camp Programs.”

Ashhad from Pakistan 🇵🇰

“Participating in the EC Iwai program for three consecutive years has been truly wonderful. Each time, I’ve had the opportunity to delve into Japanese education and understand the perspectives of young teenagers aged 12-15. Exploring their interests, curiosity about foreign cultures, and interactions has been eye-opening. The supportive staff, amazing kids, beautiful views in Chiba, and delicious food have all made it an unforgettable experience.”

Suji from India 🇮🇳

“Attending the English camp with Japanese junior high school students was an incredibly rewarding experience. The ice-breaking sessions and games on the first day helped everyone bond and feel comfortable with each other. The cross-cultural presentations on the allowed us to learn and appreciate each other’s backgrounds and traditions. However, the highlight was undoubtedly the outdoor treasure hunt on the next day, where we worked together as a team, laughed, and enjoyed the thrill of the adventure. My role in encouraging the Japanese students to learn and speak English was both fulfilling and enjoyable. Overall, these three days were filled with fun, laughter, and unforgettable memories that I will cherish for a long time.”

Shubham from India 🇮🇳
