Youth Immersion(high school) (Tokyo-E): Description of schedule
Before your departure to Japan, you will received host family information and airport pickup information, trip leader contacts and pre-departure guide.
We will pick up students at the Tokyo Narita International Airport on the scheduled arrival day.  Group stays at a city hotel for group gathering and rest (hotel stay included in program fee).
Next day (Sunday), students meet host families at Opening Ceremony in Hotel, then go with the families to their house.
On Monday, host families will buy commuting pass (pass included in program fee) for you, take you to class and show you how to commute.   Placement test will be taken to determine your level and classes.
Classes official start on Monday. Below is daily class schedule:
10: 20 am-11: 05 am, 11: 15 am-12:00 pm, 12: 10 pm-12:55 pm, 2:00 pm-2:45 pm, 2:55 pm-3: 40 pm
Lunch hour is between 12:55 pm to 2:00 pm. After afternoon lessons, many students like to have their own time together in the city before going back to host family's house for dinner.   Students spend the evenings with the host family.
Teachers and trip leaders will monitor students arrival at classes, and host families will monitor students getting back to their house.  No language classes when group trip or culture activities is scheduled on that day, there are two day trips scheduled in the program, culture activities include calligraphy.
On weekends, host families will stay with students to show them Japanese culture, bring them to parties, family events, meet new friends and for trips they arranged.

On the last Friday, Sayonara party hosted at School, students showcase their learning and celebrate with the host families.
On Saturday, host families bring students to the city hotel for Closing ceremony and say good bye to host families, dining for the group in the evening.
On Sunday, we will send students to the airport for drop offs, and students fly back home.

Culture Discovery: Description of schedule
Before your departure to Japan, you will received host family information and airport pickup information, and pre-departure guide.
We will pick up students at the Tokyo Narita International Airport on the Arrival day (Saturday).
On Monday, it is the day of orientation, but do not buy your commuting pass yet, as the classroom location will be determined by your level and you may have to get off from a different station nearby.  You will have the orientation session and take a placement test.
Depends on your level, you will attend either lessons in the morning from 9:10-12:40 pm, or in the afternoon from 1:30 pm or 5:00 pm. Lunch hour is between 12:40 pm to 1:30 pm.  Depends on the day, there is either culture activities or free time for the rest of the half day.
Saturday is usually organized day trips and Sunday is free.  At the end of the program (and middle of the program for Tokyo C), there is a three day long haul trip to either Fuji Mountain or Kyoto.  You will get back from the long haul trip on the last Friday and say with your host family for the last night.
On next day (Saturday morning), you will leave your host family's house to the airport, please note that airport drop off is NOT arranged.
