Kevin Adams from Dallas, United States writes a review:
Meiji Academy in Fukuoka is a great place! During my studies at this school, I visited Japan with my fellow students while learning Japanese. The excursions and weekend trips were incredible. I was not in the sharehouse with the others because I prefer living alone, but I nevertheless integrated myself very easily thanks to the classes and the meetings at school. I chose the Japanese Intensive Course because I wanted to improve my Japanese and be able to communicate with Japanese people quickly. It worked well cause during the language exchanges with Japanese students, I was able to speak easily with them and make friends!
