The curriculum of the Core Japanese Course at GenkiJACS includes twenty weekly classes, divided into ten 50-minute sessions focused on grammar, and ten classes dedicated to the application of all four language skills.

GenkiJACS offers a unique homestay program, providing students with a genuine immersion into Japanese culture. Staying with a Japanese host family allows you to practice and enhance what you’ve learned in class in a real-life setting. This experience is invaluable in understanding the nuances of the language and culture.

Understanding the importance of compatibility, GenkiJACS takes great care in matching you with a host family that aligns with your preferences and needs. Factors such as smoking habits, allergies, and the host’s English proficiency are considered to ensure a comfortable and conducive learning environment.

The host families serve not just as accommodation providers but as mentors, guides, and friends, offering a rich, supportive backdrop for your adventure in Japan. They often become one of the most cherished connections students make during their stay. To guarantee a safe and suitable homestay experience, GenkiJACS meticulously screens all host family applicants.

Every student is guaranteed a private room, which may be styled traditionally (Japanese) or more modernly (Western). It’s important to note that during peak seasons like summer, you may share the homestay with another student. However, GenkiJACS ensures that each student has their own private space and, ideally, pairs students who do not share the same native language to encourage Japanese usage.

Private Apartment

GenkiJACS offers the option of staying in a Private Apartment, a choice that combines the quality of a hotel room with the affordability and convenience of weekly rentals. Each Private Apartment is well-equipped, featuring a comfortable bed, a cozy living area, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. All necessary appliances are provided, ensuring a comfortable stay.

One of the standout features of these apartments is the inclusion of high-speed wired internet at no additional cost. This amenity is particularly beneficial for students who require reliable internet access for their studies or leisure.

The Private Apartments are predominantly located in central areas of the city, offering easy access to local amenities. In Fukuoka, for instance, some apartments are conveniently situated within walking distance of the GenkiJACS school, making them an excellent choice for students prioritizing proximity and ease of commute.

GenkiJACS collaborates with various third-party accommodation providers to offer these apartments throughout the city. While specific apartment placement or location requests (such as a particular neighborhood like “Ikebukuro”) cannot be guaranteed due to varying availability, GenkiJACS endeavors to place students in suitable accommodations that meet their needs.

Opting for a Private Apartment is a slightly more expensive option, yet it’s a fantastic choice for those who value their privacy and the convenience of having their own space while studying at GenkiJACS.
