Sebastian: Short-Term Intensive Japanese Course, Rikkyo Univ.

This summer Sebastian spent three weeks studying on the Short-Term Intensive Japanese Course at the Niiza Campus of Rikkyo University in Tokyo. The programme included lessons, activities, optional trips and home visits. Sebastian kindly shared his experiences with this year’s CES Japanese classes,¬†providing valuable advice about the course and practical tips for making exploration in Japan as easy and rewarding as possible. Note: to use foreign bankcards in an ATM, go to a post office or a 7-Eleven!
