The study environment was really nice and all the teachers were great and i could really learn a lot. I especially liked Sakumi Sensei.

All of the teachers have a qualification that is is equivalent to a university minor degree, and the result is a very high standard of teaching.

September 2017

I studied for 3 weeks at GenkiJacs Tokyo by the time of writing this review I still have 2 days left. What i can tell so far is that it was really a nice experience. The study environment was really nice and all the teachers were great and i could really learn a lot. I especially liked Sakumi Sensei. She has a great way to teach with her cheerful attitude. All the other teachers were great too and acted very professional and friendly. The size of the classes is good too . I also liked the things provided at student lounge, you can read magazines and japanese manga for free. The free time activities made by the school were also really nice. I really enjoyed the hicking trip to Mount Takao. All in all I can highly recommend studying with GenkiJacs if you want to study Japanese in Japan.
