Recently, 20 schoolchildren made their way to Meiji Gakuin, a Protestant university in Tokyo, to spend their summer vacation studying Japanese.
The children, ranging from sixth-year elementary to third-year junior high school age, all came from refugee and immigrant families and have difficulty with Japanese.
During the 20-day program, Japanese lessons were offered to students grouped by ability level, while instruction and review of other core subjects was conducted in classes arranged by grade level.
