Japanese in Kyoto

I had an absolutely amazing 6 weeks studying Japanese in Kyoto. I was nervous about travelling by myself to a country that was so far away. But the support I got from the Global Work and Travel team was fantastic. I didn't have to worry about anything. And the friends I met while on the course will be friends for life.
The course itself was well-structured, informative and fun. The senseis were all incredibly friendly and helpful. It has given me a solid foundation from which to continue Japanese through self-study. Would absolutely recommend it. It's four hours a day from Mon-Fri and that leaves plenty of time to explore. We fit so much in!
