NF-JLEP Visit Japan Program

for Primary and Secondary School Teachers

This program provides an opportunity to NF-JLEP fellows who currently teach Japanese at a primary or secondary school to make a short-term visit to Japan. Their firsthand experience in Japanese society and culture will hopefully deepen their understanding of Japan and help their teaching of the Japanese language after returning to their home countries, thereby contributing to a fuller appreciation of the Japanese language among students.

Intended for
Teachers of the Japanese language at a primary or secondary educational institution who have received NF-JLEP funding in the past
