Testimonial: Milton Koch, Macalester College

Milton Koch

A year abroad on the Japan Study program allowed me to not only greatly improve my Japanese language abilities, but to also get a view of a completely different way of life. In the U.S. eating five fruits and vegetables is considered the key to a healthy diet. Within my first week of living with my host family, I learned that in Japan eating 30 different foods each day is considered essential to living healthy, hence the creation of variety vegetable juices. By placing me in a Japanese home, the Japan Study program enabled me to increase my knowledge of Japanese culture and language to unexpected heights.
