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!

Host family
If you want to have an authentic experience in Japan by fully immersing yourself in both the culture and the language, then the homestay option is perfect for you. Your host family will make you feel at home during your whole stay and will offer you many opportunities to practise your Japanese while you discover their lifestyle and live just like a local!
These families typically live up to 90 minutes away from the school. You’ll have a single room and will share the bathroom. Regarding your meals, you can choose daily breakfasts or the half-board option (breakfast and dinner).

Guest house
Staying at a guest house is the perfect way to make friends fast while still enjoying your own privacy. You’ll stay in a single room and will share the bathroom and the kitchen with other students, so you’ll find it easy to meet people! This guest house is located 25-50 minutes away from the school by bus or by train.

Private apartment
If total independence and privacy is what you need, then this accommodation option is for you. You’ll stay in a furnished studio 40-50 minutes away from school by bus or train. These apartments include a bed, a living room area, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom, as well as many amenities such as a TV, a washing machine, free Internet connection and air conditioning.

Our partner school offers a fun and varied activity programme which will allow you to further your Japanese language and cultural knowledge while you make new friends. Movie nights are held frequently, as well as game nights, where you’ll learn about traditional Japanese games such as hanafuda. Other exciting activities include eating at a floating restaurant (where you catch your own fish!), dining at local street stalls, karaoke competitions and cherry blossom viewing parties. One thing is for sure: you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to having fun in Kyoto!
