17/12: A Word of Thanks to some of our friends
There’s an amazing thing about GenkiJACS: the students keep coming back, again and again! For most people, visiting Japan is a once in a lifetime experience, and we always try to keep that in mind when dealing with students – this may be our only chance to show them how great Japan is, so we have to try our best with each and every student. However, there are some students who don’t just come back to Japan again, they choose to return to study at GenkiJACS, instead of visiting somewhere else in Japan.
We’ve been accepting students from overseas for three and a half years now, and in that time we’ve had more than 800 people study with us from overseas. Of those, three people have come to study with us four times. Four times in less than four years! This fact still amazes us. So, we would like to take this space to offer a special thank you to those three students: Susan, Alan, and Rod. In particular, Rod quit his job to study with us for half a year this time! We are deeply appreciative of the sacrifices these students made to study with us, and the responsibility we have to give them the best experience and education we can.
Another six students have studied with us three times in three years. Finally, more than 70 students have studied with us twice. So, in total, almost 10% of GenkiJACS students return to study with us again! The teachers love to see students come back, partly because it is a statement from the student that they enjoyed their time with us, but also because it’s great to see old friends again! And just in case any former GenkiJACS students are reading this, don’t forget we offer 10% tuition discounts for returning students…
