Most recent student reviews of language schools in Yokohama

Rating: 5

5.0 | 1 review

The curriculum is very organized and instructors stick to a tight schedule. There are no situations where the class gets behind and has to catch up and fly through material. I left the class in the middle of the semester, so the instructors provided me with textbook and practice workbook recommendations and samples, as well as extra study material to use on my own after I left the class. They even provided contact information and offered to answer any questions I have in the future. Individual attention is definitely available if you ask them for assistance.
The only social activity offered while I was there was an information session on local colleges. There weren't any other social days on the schedule, so I don't think the school focuses on cultural events for my class type. I did not use the school's accommodation so I cannot comment on it, hence 3 stars. Instructors are very kind and patient, but to a fault. I gave them 4/5 because I would have liked more homework and quizzes to get feedback on my learning. This is a minor point; I learned a ton in the short time I was there and wish I could have extended.
