Which ones should you choose
In the general course, students study the Japanese language long-term on a student visa. Classes are carefully organized according to the skill levels and learning speeds of students. In this course, teachers help students comprehensively expand their proficiency in Japanese, with a proper balance of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Additionally, we take steps aimed at enabling students to pass the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) with a high score. Along the way, students acquire Japanese language abilities useful in a variety of situations.

A Japanese language school super easy, but there are still some basics you should know about how Japanese language schools work, what you learn, and how the schools can support your language learning goals
You can study Japanese in Japan for up to two years with a student visa, but it’s important to check your chosen school’s available course’s length, as they vary by term, with some schools and terms only offering courses that last 15 months versus others that offer a full 24 months.
Full-time Japanese language students study for 5 days a week, typically half a day Monday to Friday, either in a morning or afternoon class. Japanese language class schedules are prescribed by each school depending on their schedule availability and language level of the student. Japanese language class sessions are normally broken up into blocks of 4 x 45mins or 2 x 90mins focusing on different topics like vocabulary, grammar, Kanji, reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
There are different methods and school teaching methodologies depending on your current language level, your Japanese language goal, and your desired intensity. Typically each school will teach a variety of topics to help you to achieve your desired language level using topics like vocabulary, grammar, Kanji, reading, writing, listening, and speaking. There are a variety of language schools available that offer high to low-intensity courses. A high-intensity school would expect you to attend classes, complete a significant homework load plus also do a lot of self-study, meaning for the first three months of school they do not recommend, or in some cases even allow, part-time work for their students. A low-intensity school will have a similar class load but will require less homework and self-study in order to keep up with the class curriculum and pass the course.
All schools have regular tests throughout the term and at the end of each term (usually around three or six months) there is also a level check test to verify your language proficiency and allow you to move up a level if you successfully pass. In order to pass your language level test, you will need to ensure you have kept up with classwork and homework as well as doing any additionally required self-study recommended by your school.
