Genki Japanese and Culture School

Genki Japanese and Culture School

Our partner school is located very near one of the most emblematic areas in Kyoto – the historic Gion district, where you’ll find traditional restaurants, authentic artisanship and you may just cross a maiko or a geisha! This language school offers 9 classrooms equipped with projectors, tablets and whiteboards. There is a maximum of 8 students per class, so as to allow teachers to attend to each students’ needs. All levels are welcome and although standard lessons focus on grammar, speaking, listening, writing and reading, you can also add extra lessons on different skills and topics such as conversation or culture. Between or after lessons, grab a free coffee or tea and head to the manga library or the student lounge for a video game session!
