Japanese Language School GenkiJACS: Learn Japanese with the Best!
We are fully booked at Complete Beginner and Beginner 1 levels at both schools until August 10! For study at Beginner 2 level and above, please enquire. Only a few places are available in August, so book early!
Japanese Language School GenkiJACS is an accredited and award-winning Japanese school teaching communicational study abroad courses, learning the Japanese language and culture in a relaxed and friendly environment.
We have schools in central Tokyo, and in Fukuoka City in Southern Japan.
Classes are small (maximum 7 students per class, but up to 8 in some cases), and focused on Western students' needs.
GenkiJACS was nominated by popular vote
as one of the world's star language schools (not just Japanese language school!) every year from 2009 to 2015. We are one of only two Japanese language schools in the world that are accredited by IALC, the International Association of Language Centres.
We offer courses in a range of areas, including conversational Japanese,
pop culture, and traditional culture, all with an emphasis on practical work, inside and outside of
the classroom. For students coming from overseas to study abroad at our language school, we can
prepare a range of accommodation options including homestays and dorms, and arrange various activities for the duration of your
stay. We're here to make learning Japanese worthwhile and enjoyable - that's why students return to GenkiJACS again and again!
GenkiJACS is one of the most popular Japanese language schools for Western students in Japan! Join now to find out why, or click here to read the great things our students have to say about Genki Japanese Language School!
GenkiJACS is not just your normal Japanese language school.
Here are some of the differences:
Courses start every Monday year-round,
and you can study for as long as you want, from 2 weeks to a year or more! We schedule classes to
fit your needs, instead of forcing you to learn when we want you
Small class size
Classes are limited to a maximum of 7 students (up to 8 in certain circumstances),
and usually have around 4, giving you plenty of chance to practice
with the teacher.
All ability levels accepted
Whether you are a complete beginner, an expert, or somewhere in between, we have a class for you. Multiple segments of each class
means you're not stuck in a group with people much higher or lower than you.
Classes focused on Western students
Unlike almost all other Japanese schools, 90% of our students are from the US, Europe and Australia. So the content of our classes is focused specifically on the needs of those students.
One of only two Japanese schools accredited by the International Association of Language Centres, and shortlisted every year from 2009 to 2013 as one of the world's star language schools! Students return again and again.
Only qualified teachers
Unlike some other Japanese schools, all of GenkiJACS' teachers
are graduates of a 420-hour Japanese teacher training course
at a recognized study institution. We hire only the best, and perform regular training. Students agree: you won’t find better teachers!
Our Tokyo school is in the heart of Shinjuku, and Fukuoka City is the perfect place to study Japanese, with some of Japan's best weather and most beautiful beaches. A great combination!
