We believe that you cannot fully understand the Japanese language without also understanding Japanese culture. Therefore, lessons focus not just on what to say, but on when, how and why to say it.
We adapt our lessons to the needs of each student, while keeping them practical and interesting, to give you the skills and confidence for success. A full schedule of events and activities, both at school and outside it, lets you master what you learn in class.
Our experienced and friendly teachers and staff provide individual attention and care. And our great locations in the center of both Fukuoka and Tokyo allow you to experience Japan the way you want it. These are the reasons so many people study with us again and again, and why we were voted for the last four years running as one of the world’s top language schools!
What sets GenkiJACS apart from other Japanese schools?
Small class size: A maximum of 8 students (9 in summer) gives you lots of chances to practice with the teacher.
Exciting courses: Study Japanese using manga/anime, or learn ancient arts such as tea ceremony and pottery - we have a variety of courses you won’t find at other schools
Flexible schedules: Unlike most Japanese schools, courses start almost every Monday year-round, and you can study for as long as you want, from 2 weeks to a year or more!
Great teachers: They’re the most important part of any school. That’s why we hire the best, and perform regular training. Students agree: you won’t find better
All ability levels accepted: Whether you are a complete beginner, an expert, or somewhere in between, we have a class for you!
Proven quality: Multiple accreditations and awards, including being selected as one of the top language schools in the world, are a guarantee of a great education! And now you can receive university credit!
You’ll spend more time with the teachers than almost anyone else you meet in Japan, so we only hire the best!
We have had students from a total of 78 countries. Since we focus mostly on the needs of students from Western countries, they make up the biggest portion of our student body. Most students are complete or low beginners when they start with us, but we accept up to high intermediate levels.
