It's like a second house where you come and learn so much. The teachers are very good and also very friendly.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I just want to say that you should speak as much Japanese as possible. Even though you might not speak at that well at first, just don't be scared and practice!
Other comments
I had such an amazing time here. The teachers, the other students and the people from Fukuoka made that possible. I met a lot of people from all over the world and a lot of Japanese people. I will definitely comeback soon, because I liked it so much and I want to speak Japanese even better.

The teachers' energy! They were simply amazing, very nice and polite :). I also loved the culture classes and how easy it was to make friends and such!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Yeah, be very thorough while reading a map, it is easy to get lost if you are not careful. You should also ask for help with the way to the school and to where you live.

It was the most amazing thing I have ever experienced! A lovely school with amazing teachers and Mai-san that helped me a lot! I'm in a loss for words so the easiest way to explain my visit is that it was simply amazing (and for the younger generation: Epic and awesome!). Loved it!

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They'll help you with anything and go out of their way to do so. Also, you get a free personal cup while you're there. You have a selection of beverages, microwave, DVD/Manga/bookselection you can rent or even keep (the books) for free. Also, you get flash cards, so you can learn all the vocab and Kanji quickly and, if your a woman, you get a personal alarm (not that it's really necessary but it's definitely reassuring).
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Go around town at lunchtime to try all the delicious food (ramen, udon, ohagi, motsunabe) and just mingle with the Japanese, it's a unique experience. Don't forget to try the uncountable amount of sweets in Japan. The chocolat is quite delicious (and as a Swiss I have experience when it comes to good chocolate. ;)

You can get a language exchange partner for free, if you ask at the school or mention it when you book the course. They'll find you a suitable Japanese exchange partner, so you really get to speak as much Japanese as possible.

Be aware not to take two courses if you stay more than 2 weeks. 4hours/day is enough and let yourself time to enjoy your stay.
