Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I heard a lot of Chinese every day because most of my classmates were from China. But if I didn't know Chinese, I might have been forced to speak more Japanese.
Other comments: The largest language school in Japan, with many serious long term students from China. Wish I could have stayed longer, but just had 2 weeks.
