Yale Testimonials

Santiago spent wonderful days at the summer camp and he also learned very well the English language. Many friends asked us about our experience with you and we say that it is not only wonderful, it is trustable. Sorry that I do not have more kids!

Bolivian mother. Son went to Yale, 2017


My favorite part of this program was that it served many unique classes which I can't take in Japan. My best memory was that we could make a lot of friends in foreign countries. I don't have opportunities which I communicate with foreigners in my country. I could know that communication skill is more important than speaking skill. It was very precious experience for me.
