Damen Trent recommends the Language School Genki Japanese & Culture School Tokyo (Genki JACS).

I started emailing Japanese language schools. The first school kept sending me options that didn't meet my criteria. The next two differed greatly in price. I went with Genki JACS because it was cheaper. I was not disappointed at all. Denis helped me every step of the way with getting set up and making changes I needed. I arrived at the airport and got to my apartment and then the school with no issues.
The school reception desk with Eri and Denis was always available to answer anything to do with the school or any general questions I had about Tokyo.
My residence was great. It had everything I needed: dishes, appliances, fast wi-fi, tv, etc.
The teachers were all phenomenal. Enthusiastic, interactive classes kept everyone attention and were fun.
I have nothing bad to say about GenkiJACS. I highly recommend them and would definitely go back.

Annabelle Thiba recommends the Language School Genki Japanese & Culture School Tokyo (Genki JACS).

I spent 3 weeks at Genki JACS in Tokyo and really enjoyed it. I had fun in class (laughed a lot!) and improved my speaking skills enough to notice a difference in just a few days. I studied language acquisition and I can tell you the teachers are professional and know what they're doing. They're always pushing you to interact and there's no time for slacking off outside of breaks. The class sizes weren't as advertised, though: we've had 9 people some weeks, which means we had less opportunities to talk with the teachers (but we had more speaking activities with each other to make up for it.) Also, although the schedule was a bit too unpredictable to my taste, the 4-hour days give you enough time to explore the city before or after class. If you're planning to go to Tokyo for a few weeks, it's great as it allows you to plan activities and do some sightseeing while learning skills you can apply immediately outside of class. I'm not sure if this school would benefit higher level students, but if you're an intermediate student looking to improve your speaking skills like me, you'll meet your study goals for sure.

Stefan Nyul recommends the Language School Genki Japanese & Culture School Tokyo (Genki JACS).

I have just returned from Japan studying the second time at GenkiJACS. First time was in Fukuoka, this time in Tokyo. What I write here is true for both locations.

In a nutshell GenkiJACS makes sure, that the teachers systematically and efficiently teach students. While doing so, students are not only listening but are constantly pushed to actively take part in the lessons. You need to read before class, anser questions, write down sentences... . There is no chance to "nod away". You are forced to use the Japanese language every minute of class and this is in my humble opinion the most effective way of teaching a language.

On top the teachers are competent, funny, likeable and very patient. I was looking forward to classes every day.

Another insider tip (which is most probably true for other language schools as well) is using homestay in a guest family. In spite the fact that I am already 50 years old I always use this type of accomodation because it is actually part of the learning. Every morning and evening and at the weekends talking with the host family about daily things, news in TV, differences between Japan and the own country is a very valuable experience. Of course they are no Japanese teachers and often are bad at English so you often need to look up words or try to describe the word you are looking for using the vocabulary you already have but this is excercise, excercise, excercise. And that's what I came for.

Finally classes are small, from 1 to 6 students. My class was 2 to 4 most of the time.

GenkiJACS is a full recommendation and I am looking forward to the Kyoto location that is planned to being opened this summer.

Cheers,
Stefan

petert recommends the Language School Genki Japanese & Culture School Tokyo (Genki JACS).

After having studied Japanese in adult educ classes in the US for 4-5 years, I attended GenkiJACS in Tokyo for 7 weeks and took the beginner level 2 Japanese language and advanced conversation classes. Overall, I found my time at the school very worthwhile and my language skills improved noticeably. I recommend GenkiJACS to those who want to study Japanese in a fun environment.
The school uses the Genki textbook (Japan Times, pub.), which is an excellent series that I had used in my previous classes. Students take a placement test upon arrival and the school did a good job of putting me in an appropriate level class. All classes are ongoing - so when you arrive you have to just jump into whatever lesson that class is studying. The number of class hours per week, in class review of grammar lessons, homework, and tests all reinforce what you learn and allow you to make real progress.
Key strengths of GenkiJACS are the teachers and support staff. The teachers are all very skilled, friendly, and enthusiastic, and I was quite impressed with how well they handled the constant flow of new students into the school. Teachers rotate among classes, so that in my first week I had about six or seven different teachers. At first it all seems rather chaotic, but then you see that they have a well-structured system in place. Lessons are carefully planned out and teachers follow the curriculum with great fidelity, so it all works well. And I quickly came to appreciate having the opportunity to experience the different personalities and teaching styles. The support staff are also extremely helpful and I always found them willing to assist with any problems or questions I might have.
One challenging aspect of GenkiJACS is the range of student commitments to studying the language. Students can enroll from anywhere between two weeks and several months and not everyone takes their studies equally seriously. Students can do their homework--or not; show up for classes on time--or not. The teachers do their best to balance maintaining a light-hearted atmosphere with encouraging everyone to work hard--and most students do apply themselves. But occasionally I found some of my classmates attitudes or behaviors a little disruptive. I quickly learned, however, that I shouldn’t worry too much about what other students were doing. Like most things, you get out of the experience what you put into it. Nevertheless, people who want a more serious learning environment, and are able to do so, might want to consider a university-based program instead.
In summary, GenkiJACS provided a worthwhile experience and a fun place to study Japanese. GenkiJACS provided me with an opportunity to enhance my speaking and writing skills and has given me a good foundation for continuing my Japanese language studies. I’m definitely glad that I chose to spend time there!

I studied at Genki JACS Tokyo for 7 weeks from February to end March 2016. I started as a complete beginner with just a few Japanese words I had picked up on previous trips to Japan. The school uses the Genki book for beginners and it is a requirement to be able to read and write Hiragana before you arrive. On Day 1 we were given a test to test knowledge of Hiragana.

Classes are excellent. Small size (up to 8 people max). The teachers are simply fantastic. Knowledgeable, fun and caring. I achieved excellent results in just 7 weeks being able to read and write both Hiragana and Katakana (and a bit of kanji) and to hold basic conversations.

The reception staff are also super friendly and efficient. A very likeable bunch.

Location is simply fantastic. Close to Shinjuku Sanchome station with shops, restaurants, Starbucks etc all within a 5-10 min walk from the school.

The school was also a lot of fun! The atmosphere is great with a friendly crowd mainly composed of European students from various countries in Europe. Most students were in their 20s with a few in their 30s and even fewer in their 40s (yes I am in that bracket...). We formed a close knit group of friends and it was just great to hang out, go for lunch together, karaoke, dinners etc etc.

I also opted for the culture programme doing a combination of traditional and pop culture. This was interesting but perhaps less well designed. The activities could be better.

The school also offers some other social activities like movie night, or dinner every Friday at nearby locations.

Every Friday there is a graduation ceremony. I felt a real sense of achievement delivering a mini speech in Japanese on my graduation day. And I felt that I had genuinely enjoyed the course and made new friends for life. I hope to be back to study again at Genki JACS!

I studied at GenkiJACS for one month. I had previously studied Japanese in college, but had taken a couple of years off. Upon arriving at school, they administered a placement test. The classes were based off of skill and ranged from 2-6 people. The teachers rotated among the classes, which provided a variety of teaching styles and dialects (which helped improve my listening skills). The students were also awesome as there was so much cultural diversity! I learned so much in just one month. I highly recommend GenkiJACS to someone who is serious about learning Japanese - there is class everyday and oftentimes, there is homework, so you do have to take it seriously to improve!

I have studied in GenkiJACS Tokyo branch for a period of four months from the beginning of March until the end of July.

The experience was not less than pleasurable. All the stages from the enrollment until the last of day of school were really good.

Unlike many other schools, GenkiJACS was quick to reply to my mail of inquiry and has given me all the information I wanted and more. I have been in direct contact with the school all the time prior to my arrival. The detailed site of the school is also commendable.

The school was centrally located, a two minute walk from Shinjuku-Sanchome station. The classes and the lounge were well equipped.

Upon the first day of arrival I have been greeted with welcoming smiles from the staff and has felt welcome ever since. Both coordinators went out of their way to help me with everything and anything and made my stay much more comfortable.

All the teachers were very experienced and the classes were fun. The study material was carefully selected, and the classes and in-class exercises were well prepared.

I have also enjoyed the extra-curricular activities.

During my study period my Japanese level has risen substantially, and I am looking forward to return for a longer period to study further.

gregor.waldhauser recommends the Language School Genki Japanese & Culture School Tokyo (Genki JACS).

The Genki JACS school in Tokyo is the perfect school for me. Just to set a base line here: I enjoyed language training in France (2x), Russia (1x) and now in Japan, for the very first time.
1) Location: well, the location is PERFECT, close to subway and train station of Shinjuku, department stores nearby (excellent for a quick lunch break), sights etc.
2) staff: the staff at the Geni JACS is probably the closest thing you can have to a family abroad, they are ALL extremely helpful, very patient (no matter what crazy ideas or wishes you come up with) and take care of you in a way you might not be used to when coming from Europe.
3) teachers: GREAT teachers, with a sense of humor, never losing focus, always friendly but serious enough to keep you going and reach the ambitious goals; they handle everyone, youngsters and old-timers (like me) alike;
4) the excursions and culture program: this is the only thing that I had to criticize, and I already gave input to the school itself; the program is GREAT, but there is never enough time to fully live it! e.g. the tea ceremony - wonderful to watch, but not enough time to fully try it on your own; or the Origami museum/paper manufacture, GREAT to watch, but only a child size origami to do on your own (which takes about 1 minute); nevertheless, the ideas are wonderful and the people at the various sites are wonderful too, but it is simply not enough time;
all in all, I can’t wait to got there again, maybe even longer! Highly recommendable!

travisknights recommends the Language School Genki Japanese & Culture School Tokyo (Genki JACS).

Recently I studied at Genki Jacs in Tokyo. It is an amazing school, staffed by wonderful, helpful and engaging teachers. The school is magnificently located and is close to Shinjuku station. Classes are small in size and very non-threatening. The teachers make sure you learn in a great environment. They also provide numerous trips as well. We went to local restaurants, temples and walking tours around Shinjuku. The school was fantastic, the facilities are great and it is a place I would definitely recommend anyone study at.
