My course was very short, but I really liked the support of the reception and other staff of the school. They were very friendly and ready to provide me all lesson materials and answer my questions. Lesson materials (vocabulary) were provided in my native language, that's very nice and helpful. I also liked that the teachers were able to explain difficult things in easy Japanese.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
You can reach the school not only via Takadanobaba, but also via Fukutoshin-line (Nishi-Waseda station) and then 10 min on foot.

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.

Everything!Both the staff as the classmates they were really available and kind. The course organization is excellent. The school building is very good.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Before departure provides all the necessary information. Perhaps it would be useful is some more information about the accommodation. In my accommodation (Shinjuku) I thought there was a free Internet connection, but when I arrived I discovered that it was necessary to have your own router. And in the kitchen (which is a common area) you can cook but everyone has their own personal pots, etc... However, these inaccuracies have not caused problems since routers and kitchen utensils are easily available since the accommodation is located in a fairly central position, and also the other guys in the apartment are very kind and helpful!
Other comments
The school is really fantastic and is in a great location. In the area there are several shops and restaurants and Takadanobaba Station is a 5-minute walk away and is on the metro line that can be used to reach all the more interesting and amusing areas of the city!
