Room 314 Anonymous Hall
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

Come to an information session on Dartmouth's Japanese LSA+ study abroad program in Osaka, Japan in summer 2024. The program director, Prof. Sachi Schmidt-Hori, and language instructor, Prof. Mayumi Ishida, will give more details and will be available to answer questions about the application process, etc.

During the summer of 2024, ASCL will offer the Japanese LSA+ Program in Osaka, where participating students will take Japanese 22, 23, and the Director's Course taught in English. Osaka is Japan's second largest city and known for its amazing food, vibrant mercantile culture, and its status as the "mecca of comedy" in Japan. The group will take trips to areas of cultural and historical significance, including Tokyo, Kyoto, and the site of the first official US-Japan encounter: Shimoda. For a country of the size of California, the cultural differences in these locations will be striking. People speak different dialects, their mannerisms are distinct, and you will notice that the Osakans are by far the friendliest (and most outspoken) of all Japanese.
