Achieving Excellence By Learning And Doing

Japan Study Tour 2019 The St Bernard’s College Japanese Language Department is organising a study tour to Japan in 2019 for students who are studying Japanese language in Year 10 and above in 2019. The aim of the study tour is to promote better understanding of the Japanese speaking community, people, language and culture through a wide range of “in-country” experiences. Our experience from previous tours has shown that this provides our students with an excellent opportunity to communicate with their Japanese peer group. During the tour, the students will be immersed in a range of activities. They will attend language classes and culture workshops such as tea ceremony, Japanese cooking etc. Further highlights will include the excursions to the ancient cities of Kyoto and Nara, strolling around the Megalopolis Tokyo and possibly viewing a Sumo tournament and a professional Baseball game. All the students and the accompanying teachers will stay in accommodation together throughout the tour except during the home stay. Students will experience a home stay with Japanese families over one weekend (2-nights) in Hiroshima Prefecture. The study tour program is open to any students of Japanese language during the term when the tour will be conducted. In the event of more applicants than can be accommodated, the final number of successful candidates will be decided through merit-based criteria. Please note you will be required to attend 4 compulsory meetings in preparation for the trip. Proposed Dates It is anticipated the tour will last for approximately two weeks in September which is likely to coincide with the school holidays. Proposed Cost Approximately $5,000 (This includes the return airfare, transportation between the major cities, accommodation, breakfast, homestay, the entrance fees for the major attractions and the meals during the Hiroshima portion of the tour. The final cost is subject to adjustment.) The installment will be divided into four stages. Spending Money Approximately $600 (This includes the meals (lunch & dinner) and the local traveling cost after the Hiroshima portion of the tour.)
