Testimonials & Reviews


An extraordinary thing on this school is the atmosphere. The teachers are relaxed and in a really good mood. It is real fun to have lessons with them. It’s a great place to study. I would recommend the school and I’m looking forward for my next stay at Genki JACS.

I had a great host family. They were very welcoming, and always tried to make my stay in Fukuoka fun and interesting. I was very happy with them.

I was pleasantly surprised. You feel almost part of a family here. The teachers were open to talk about what you want. They aren't afraid to stray from the lesson. I learned a ton!

The atmosphere was very welcoming and supportive. I had a great time and learnt a lot. I'd come again!

I live in America. Coming to Japan is obviously a big deal. And still, I would certainly consider returning to GenkiJACS. Thank you!

Very good teachers, small classes. If I were to come back to learn Japanese, I would come here.

My host family has been very kind and helpful. Thank you for finding a good place for me to homestay. Without them I couldn't have managed to settle here.

I really appreciated how open the teachers were to questions and suggestions. The trips were also very educational and fun.

The teachers are simply fantastic. Knowledgeable, fun and caring. I achieved excellent results in just 7 weeks. Location is simply fantastic.

GenkiJACS was and is a unique experience. I went here last year and I will never forget it. The teachers are all really friendly and helpful.

Compared to other language schools I have studied at, the instructors at GenkiJACS are very enthusiastic. While my instructors were very professional in the classroom, they were also great companions/friends who love to hang out with the students with optional after-school activities. The administrative staff at GenkiJACS has been one of the very best I have ever interacted with.

I was surprised by the friendliness and amount of teacher/student interaction outside of the classroom.

The classes were relaxed and interesting and the teachers could easily explain things I had trouble with.

If you want to learn Japanese, Genki JACS is the place to go. Genki JACS is a great all around experience. -- I'm planning to go back again for another 4 weeks.

The classes were relaxed and interesting and the teachers could easily explain things I had trouble with.

I want to come back here the next time I come to Japan to study! It was a great experience with which to finish my time in Japan. Thanks so much to everyone at GenkiJACS!

Originally I went to Genkijacs for four weeks but after two weeks I realized I liked it so much I ended up studying there for three months!

The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and always happy to do what it takes for you to feel comfortable and enjoy the experience. It has been a wonderful experience, and I have been back each year.

Friendly and competent teachers! Also, the very small class sizes. It is a large plus that you do not put students with different levels into one class in order to reduce the number of classes!

Relaxed atmosphere, friendly teachers with excellent teaching skills! Small groups!

The teachers and classes: good attitude and always listening to wishes about class content.

My host family was the best! They are really nice people and if you need something they will help you!

The school made me feel like a special person, not just one more student. I stayed with a host family, and they were amazing! They were so kind to me and took me all around the city. I still stay in touch with them!

I really loved the atmosphere and the teachers. The teachers are absolutely great and I that I learned here a lot more than the past 2 years at Germany. Genki 1/2 are the best textbooks for learning Japanese!

The homestay was fantastic. I could not have asked for a better homestay experience.

Couldn't ask for nicer host families!
