I took classes for the first time from February to May 2019 at ASAHI NIHONGO SCHOOL. This little school with small classes and very friendly staff helped me tremendously to speak Japanese fluently.

The school is really flexible in serving the needs and wishes of the students. Getting treated like an individual, one can indeed learn to communicate in daily situations within a few months (leaving homework and self-study aside without which it is impossible to cope with the class speed.) There are internship programs for either side: for students studying Japanese as well as for Japanese students learning how to teach Japanese or communicate with foreigners. The students can sign up for sightseeing programs. For students coming back, Asahi Nihongo obviously strives to find accomodation that meets their likes.

I have been a student at Asahi Nihongo in Fukuoka twice, for a total of two months, in 2011 and 2012. While preparing my second visit, I was very impressed by how well the school has kept my data and information (such as personal preferences). Everyone still knew how I was and thus I was given a warm, almost family-like welcome. What makes Asahi Nihongo stand out from other schools is that they are constantly working on creating and improving systems and structures, to make sure all services run as smoothly as possible. They literally never stand still, while still providing a relaxed and fun atmosphere that is great for learning Japanese. The first time, I came with zero Japanese skills, but with the help of Asahi Nihongo, I was able to find an apartment and job in Fukuoka. Their great focus on details helped to find the perfect surroundings for what I wanted to do. I still live in Fukuoka today and often visit the school. ******In short****** Pros: - perfect location in c...
