A Magical Experience

I studied at the Genki JACS school in Fukuoka and it was absolutely wonderful. The school is located a few minutes away from Hakata Station and many malls, so there is quick and easy access to many restaurants, shops, and arcades. The classes were taught purely in Japanese, which I found extremely effective because it forced me to figure things out myself and thus make more mental connections to the new things I learned. Genki JACS also offered many different cultural activities, which were very funny and interesting. There were also many opportunities to meet Japanese people and practice my new skills. In fact, I made several friends while I was there.

Amazing School!

Genki JACS was an amazing experience! I was extraordinarily worried about adjusting and being comfortable in class because of my limited Japanese knowledge, but I had no problems.

I went to the school in Fukuoka, which had a great location - just a 5 minute walk from Hakata Station. Fukuoka itself is an awesome place to be! It's not overwhelming to navigate and there is plenty to do and eat.

Classes were a lot of fun; all the teachers were knowledgeable and organized helpful class exercises that really helped me practice speaking (which is hard to do at home). Teachers were also fun to talk to about other topics; what to do in Fukuoka, what our weekends were like, etc. All the students were very nice and the class camaraderie was great. My class had many teenagers in it that sometimes caused the class to become a little chaotic, but most of the teachers were able to keep it under control. The traditional culture class I took was also really fun and educational.

I would definitely recommend Genki JACS Fukuoka to anyone who is motivated to study Japanese! I had a great experience and wish I could have stayed longer than the three short weeks I was there.

Very interesting classes

The classes were very participative, I'd hardly get bored. During classes it didn't seem so, because we were always practicing speaking, but every week we learned a lot of new things and also, the amount of time needed outside classes to follow what was taught wasn't high, meaning you can enjoy a lot of Tokyo during weekdays. Because of the class style, I ended up befriending my classmates and had quite a busy schedule during my time in Tokyo because of this :P

My second time to study in Genki

The teachers were helpful that had given me lots of tips to get through the JLPT N3 and N4. The classrooms are clean and quite for self-study, and it is easy to make different kinds of friends in the campus. Moreover, There are different kinds of courses and accommodations offered. This time I stayed in the dorm and I enjoy your stay in there and made lots of good friends. You may consider Genki if you wanna experience the Japanese culture.

A splendid Japanese Learning School

Genki is a school with plenty of international students from different age groups that you can make lots of friends by studying over there. Moreover, the teachers are very helpful, energetic, and professional that you can learn a lot from them in a short period of time.

Fukuoka is a city quite welcoming foreigners, and you can enjoy living there , Next to Fukuoka is South Korea that you just need to take a ship around 3 hours, then you can explore another culture at the weekend after intensive weekdays ' lessons. Anyway, Genki School shall be your best option if you want to study Japanese, and experience Japanese way of life.

Best experience of language learning

Genki JACS was my best language learning experience so far. I have never studied japanese before so at first I was a bit scared I couldn't really learn the basics properly, but all the teachers were really nice and helped me with everything. They used English only for important grammar explanations which was the best method to learn japanese properly. The staff was always making sure I have all I need. I am also very glad that I chose to stay with a host family because they were very nice and spent their free time with me. Genki JACS also organise lots of trips and culture programme so you can never be bored there. Also it's a great place to meet new friends from all around the world. I highly recommend these courses because I spent the best three weeks in my life in Fukuoka thanks to Genki JACS.

All Around Great Experience

If you want to learn Japanese, Genki JACS is the place to go. The courses are well-structured, and the teachers are top-notch.
The school management is highly professional. Everything from home stays, and dorm accommodation to culture classes, and field trips is reliably organised.
The staff put together a variety of weekly evening social events that allow you to meet and mingle with Japanese people.
All in all, Genki JACS is a great all around experience. -- I'm planning to go back again for another 4 weeks.
