TUJ Kids College

"TUJ Kids College" is a unique program for 4th, 5th and 6th graders.

Participants experience "college" for a day by communicating with TUJ students while working on fun academic activities and projects.

Activities are done in groups with a few participants and 1 TUJ student. Groups are formed based on the level of each participant, which means this program can accommodate a wide range of students, from beginners to those who have studied overseas.

Although this is a one-day program, students will gain valuable experience having many English conversations with other participants and TUJ students. "TUJ Kids College" will give participants an international experience by allowing them to interact with American University students and by allowing them to practice English in a different way.

Take this opportunity to start learning English at an American University!
