Positive aspects of school
I had one outstanding teacher with whom I had class three days a week. In general,I improved my grammar substantially, my vocabulary and kanji knowledge remained the same. My speaking skills only improved from my experiences outside the school.
Other comments
Japan is a great country which can teach us so much. They are very creative in many branches of knowledge and arts and there is a strong cultural gap between Japan and Western cultures.

The school does a test in the beginning wich was quite accurate (in my case) anyway they give you a chance to say what's your main goal (eg. speaking, reading)

At Kudan Institute you will also find the people who booked really expensive (3000 EUR for 3 weeks) the WLE-Programm. You can have the same quality of language course if you book on this site a lot cheaper (WLE only provides airport transfer and Disneyworld excursion). I would even recommend to book the accomodation yourself to be in the center of Tokyo.

try to observe a 3 month language course (at least), or start at the very beginning of a term; that makes it easier for your language progress; do homestay, best training for your japanese!
