Culture: Travel globally. Live locally.

Don’t just skim the surface and succumb to a tourist’s reality, travel with SET to experience another culture through the local rhythms of daily life.

After morning instruction on language and culture, enjoy afternoons dedicated to local visits ranging from architectural and historical sites to touring food and agriculture producers, regional natural sites, and such domestic activities as shopping in a farmer's’ market or preparing a home-cooked meal. Taking the subway in Kyoto, visiting an artist's’ studio, dining with a French family — these moments add up to immersion, paralleling the daily habits of the local inhabitants.
