A wonderful program for all students!
I studied at GenkJACKS for 4 weeks in summer, and received credit from my university. It was a great program, I learned loads, and I had an amazing time. The good points were:
... I got study credit from my university
... I could take different courses each week
... They had lots of activities for us to do, like parties and cultural things
... Classes were really small
... I felt like they knew me like a person not like a number
... Fukuoka City was a fun place to stay. I didn't know it before I went there but I really liked it.
... The classes were hard but not too hard, and the teachers really helped if any of the students weren't doing so well
... My homestay family and the friends I made in Fukuoka are wondeful and I'll stay in touch with them for the rest of my life!
Classes were great and really small. My class only had 4 students! It felt like the teachers really cared about us, not like I was just another faceless student. The classes went pretty fast, but it wasn't difficult to keep up. And I could get credit from my university for studying there!
Everything was arranged without any problem, and they kept in touch with my university so i could get credit that I needed.
My host family were amazing! We had so much fun together, and they showed me around the city. That reminds me: Fukuoka city was really nice. Not as big as Tokyo of course, but it was really easy to live in and get around, and the people were really nice too.
The school had lots of cultural classes and activities and stuff to keep us busy outside of the classroom which was really fun. But some students spoke a bit too much English, so sometimes I wanted them to speak more Japanese.
