Highly recommended

The course was so successful I felt a little more knowledgeable about the Japanese language and its culture after it. The lessons and activities are well-planned so we could learn quickly and use the language confidently. I signed up for the next course without hesitation and highly recommend the school.

Value for Money Japanese Course

I have known of the existence of the school since my secondary school days and I have also had classmates who were students of the school who said good things about them. However, it was not until i was in my 30s before I went for my first class. My initial thought of the school was that it was quite old and slightly run down (being that it has been in the same premises since my secondary school days). However, once class started I began to appreciate the quality of the lessons and sensei (some of whom are native japanese). For the elementary class which I attended, the sensei was very patient and focus very much on building a good foundation. The class size is small and the atmosphere is relax with the sensei encouraging active interaction. In essence, this school may not have the posh exterior of other schools, but instead focus their resources on the more important aspect of teaching the language well and at a very reasonable price.

Pros & Cons

Pros
inexpensive, good teachers, many years of experience
