Comprehensive Integrated Learning Course and Extracurricular Foreign Language Course
Furthermore, school oﬀers more than 20 foreign language classes after school on Fridays. This means students can learn languages you hardly hear and that are impossible to study in a college. Every year we invite teachers for each of these language classes so that all students who want to take these classes can participate. Some students keep taking one class continuously for three years, while other students take three diﬀerent classes. The main purpose of this class is to acquire the target language, however, because of the small class size, communication between teachers and students becomes deeper than usual and it is very beneﬁcial for students of an inquisitive nature in developing their minds.
The following languages taught in the Comprehensive Integrated Course and Extracurricular Foreign Language Course:

Both 10th and 11th grade students are required to participate in a Study Tour. 10th grade students go to Hakone for three days as part of a Comprehensive Integrated Learning Course. During this trip, students study geography and geology in Hakone, paying attention to History and Culture. Speciﬁcally, students analyze the relationship between the vegetation, geography and geology in Hakone and predict the quality of volcanic gases by examining the spring quality. They walk around Lake Ashi and visit museums, art museums and local industries.
Students in the 11th grade visit Lake Suwa - Itoigawa area for 4 days, focusing on Science. Speciﬁcally, students examine the water quality at Lake Suwa, Lake Kizaki and Lake Aoki and learn about environmental pollution. In the Itoigawa area, students examine geological features and study how Japan Islands were formed. They also learn how to know the past from rocks.
Immediately after the Study Tour, students start working on papers. They are trained to think about what they saw by themselves and organize their ideas, whose principle can be seen through all subjects in this school. Especially, the 11th grade students are required to create papers with lots of consideration. We often see students working on their projects together and this has become a good tradition of Shiki High School.
