Nice teachers and a good atmosphere

I studied Japanese for two weeks on beginners level and I really enjoyed it. The teachers were all happy and seemed engaged in their teaching. Many students come and go every week but I still felt seen and valued just as much as anyone else. A good mix of students of all ages and from all over the world. On my two weeks I never felt bored or not engaged, it was all good fun. I would have wished for more conversation practice though. I also think they could have taken advantage of the fact that we're in Japan and made us talk to people in the city as homework perhaps. But perhaps you'd have gotten all this if you'd studied longer. In any case I really feel inspired to keep on studying Japanese now.

How can this program be improved?
Some of the teachers could be better at speaking English perhaps, sometimes you want to ask more complicated questions in English.

Very interesting classes

The classes were very participative, I'd hardly get bored. During classes it didn't seem so, because we were always practicing speaking, but every week we learned a lot of new things and also, the amount of time needed outside classes to follow what was taught wasn't high, meaning you can enjoy a lot of Tokyo during weekdays. Because of the class style, I ended up befriending my classmates and had quite a busy schedule during my time in Tokyo because of this :P
