Benefits of Cross-Cultural Education

Cross-Cultural Education (CCE) is an immersion-based education that places students with other cultures in unfamiliar environments. Such experience will develop new knowledge and skills that will create an appreciation of how other cultures relate within the context of their environment.

CCE allows students to appreciate the differences and similarities of various cultures and helps to increase their knowledge and acceptance of the differing realities. The interaction with other cultures will raise awareness of global issues and - as they experience the challenges of having to communicate in Japanese – they will become appreciative of the cultural and linguistic challenges faced by English as a Second Language students in their own school. It is believed that knowledge takes place through active transformative experience in all of us. Experiential learning through travel creates student empathy for other cultures and a greater understanding of the political and economic forces that shape societies. The in-depth approach will help to dispel the stereotype of Japan as 'exotic' and ‘mysterious’ nation.
