GenkiJACS Japanese Language School opens Tokyo branch

27/06/2013

GenkiJACS Japanese Language School has opened the Tokyo branch of their acclaimed Japanese school for foreigners this month. Conveniently located very close to downtown Tokyo’s famous Shinjuku Station, the new Japanese school will offer intensive communicational Japanese programs.

GenkiJACS was started in 2004 in Fukuoka City, in Southern Japan. Since then, the school has continuously grown, and now takes in more than 600 students from overseas each year, mostly from Western countries. The school has been shortlisted for the STM Star Awards every year since 2009.

The new branch overlooks the famous Hanazono Shrine in Shinjuku, and is directly opposite the massive Isetan department store. Its closeness to Shinjuku Station’s transport hub makes it arguably one of the most conveniently located Japanese school in the country.

The courses offered at the school are similar to those currently offered in the Fukuoka branch. GenkiJACS’ focuses on everyday communicational Japanese. Students get to learn the language and the culture simultaneously, with courses such as Japanese Plus Traditional Culture, and Japanese Plus Pop Culture. The school holds between 7 and 10 activities and events each week. Students can keep track of these events on the school’s facebook page.

Director Rie Kirby says, “when we started GenkiJACS, we felt that existing Japanese schools didn’t meet the needs of students from Western countries. We tailored our programs specifically to those needs, and now we’d like to take the success we’ve had with that approach to Tokyo. We feel our courses are a great alternative to the more strictly academic courses offered at a lot of other schools.”

GenkiJACS prides itself on its flexibility – students can start any Monday throughout the year, and study for as many weeks as they like. Class sizes are very small, with a maximum of 7 students per class, and an average of 4.
