What students liked about Lexis Japan, Kobe
The teachers and the entire staff are probably made up of the nicest people I have met. That applies to most Japanese people, but the school staff really deserves a special mention. A pleasure both in and outside of class. The classmates were also all super nice, sociable people.

Other comments: Super accommodating. I forgot to transfer the balance. Lexis let me sort out financial matters during the stay, which took several days.
Very, very nice staff. I felt very comfortable. Bright, light-flooded rooms. On the last day there was a farewell ceremony with all participants of the school, during which the certificate was handed over and a group photo was taken.

Other comments: The school sign could be improved. It is not visible from the outside of the building that the school is located here. It is a small "side entrance" and therefore difficult to find the first time. Very, very quick teaching, so that it was sometimes difficult to keep up. In the full-time course, the afternoon block is used to address these doubts. That’s very good. The website does not state that English language skills are a prerequisite. The material is taught in English (my school English was - thank God - enough!).
The teachers are very open and friendly. The school is located right in the center in a modern building.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Definitely join the leisure activities.
Other comments: The summer courses are too full, at least at the beginners' level (up to 20 participants). It's best to learn the Hiragana and the Katagana alphabet in advance. The beginner courses are very mixed in regards to the level of the participants, and with zero previous knowledge, it becomes difficult.
Location in Kobe, quality of education, teachers are very professioal
