When I decided to enter JALS Hokkaido, my goal was just to learn more Japanese. But through the spring course, I had an amazing experience for 6 weeks I'd never imagined before.
Jals was always full of students who want to learn Japanese and also there were a lot of Japanese studying foreign languages. Cafe of jals is literally the perfect place for people who want to share their language with others.
One of the best parts of spring course was its cultural activities. Activies such as making soba, making own chopsticks definetely helped me experience diverse cultures of Japan. I also had a lot of fun with the staffs and other students during the activities.
The class of jals was different from any other language schools. I definitely had more chance to speak japanese and have conversation with classmates and I found out it's much more helpful not only for developing speaking ability but also grammar or kanjis.
I really enjoyed my 6 weeks in jals, and I still believe it was the best decision to join jals.
