Japan House


Language Immersion Student Residence (LISR) program at BYU provides an immersion environment in a number of languages, including Japanese. In the Japan House, residents live in an on-campus housing facility with others studying Japanese. Residents speak only Japanese in the living areas, participate in a weekly study session, and attend four weekly dinners with other residents. Most school years, the LISR hosts 1 apartment for men and 1 apartment for women (with 6 residents per apartment in shared rooms). One of the residents in each apartment is a native or highly proficient speaker of Japanese and helps to model correct language use. 2 credits of Japanese 311R is available as part of the program.
