Japanese At Exeter!!!


The foreign language selection at Exeter is abundant! However, my personal favorite is Japanese! The program is exceptional and the teacher is well… AMAZING! When I came in  as a new lower, Japanese became the class I looked forward to most in my day. The classroom environment is always lively and Ms. Tazawa involves games as modes of instruction whenever possible. Most of the time, it feels as if I am hanging out with friends. However at the end of class, I realize how much I have learned.

My experience with Japanese has been so incredible I have decided to attend a term abroad next year. I am very much looking forward to my experience. I will have the opportunity to hone my language skills to the level of fluency.

I have previously studied Spanish and Chinese, yet, they cannot compare to Japanese! I encourage you to sign up to take the best class on campus next year!

You will not regret it!!

Hello! My name is Natalie. I am 17 years old, an upper in Dunbar Hall, and reside in Milwaukee, WI. I grew up a global citizen traveling extensively throughout the United States and world. For almost half my life, I lived in New Zealand. Throughout my travels I never thought I would be so fortunate to attend Phillips Exeter Academy. Exeter, is a global community where students from all over the world unite their passions, history, and aspirations. At the Academy, I study Japanese (so great...you should sign up!), have competed on the varsity field hockey, basketball, and golf teams, play a variety of instruments, take voice lessons, and partake in a myriad of volunteer work. The extra-curricular options here are endless! If you have an interest in something, chances are it's already here or you can start it up! Currently my favorite classes are Japanese and US History. I love the Harkness style (there is a reason other schools have copied Exeter). I am always engaged in class and truly enjoy learning in the school's exciting environment. Deciding to attend Exeter is the best decision I have ever made! I am so honored to call myself an Exonian!
