Learn Japanese in Japan - Picking the right school - GenkiJACS vs. Asahi Nihongo

I have always loved Japan and I sometimes wonder myself how could have I spent so much time there without knowing any Japanese and how did I manage to find such great friends with a huge language barrier. I must have been very lucky.

I keep visiting Japan every year, and last year I decided to learn the language. When I was looking for the right school, I did not want to go to a city as big as Tokyo and I picked Fukuoka instead. As ramen lover, it was an easy choice, because Fukuoka is home to Hakata ramen, a heavenly tonkotsu broth variant of my favourite dish.

After some research I narrowed the schools down to two candidates: Asahi Nihongo and GenkiJACS. They offered similar packages with accommodation and they both give cost estimates on their websites. I contacted both schools at the same time. If I remember correctly, GenkiJACS website last year wasn't as sexy as it is now, but the thing I really loved was the instant chat that help me a lot in my decision.

Overall GenkiJACS was a bit more responsive and that was the deciding factor. Otherwise it would be a coin flip.

I will continue blogging about Japan, Japanese language and GenkiJACS. I've studying a month and a half with them now. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

In the meantime you can read some more info about GenkiJACS here:
