Winter and spring abroad

I truly had a great time living and experiencing all the great culture of Japan. The teachers were all very nice and very helpful with all the different course materials they provided. I would recommend this course for beginners or even those for advanced. As one of the longer students who stayed and I'm glad I got to go through this great experience with them. It would be so great to be able to go again.

One amazing month in Sapporo

I went to Sapporo Jals last year during one month. I don't know how to explain how incredible this experience was.
As a real Swiss person, I am not afraid of the cold but I didn't expect to see that much snow in Sapporo. It was totally magical, with these snowy streets. Sapporo is a recent and cold city but the inhabitants are so warm and nice. They will not hesitate to help you if they can.

About Sapporo Jals, I would like to say that it was love at first sight. The staff is lovely and amazing, very kind and helpful. Teachers are really cool and competent and you will learn Japanese in small classes, which is better to improve faster. Do not hesitate to ask them if you need something.

Moreover, the school proposes so many different cultural activities. You will have the opportunity to speak Japanese with local Japanese people and visit this fascinating city. You will be immerged in a different Japan.
So, even more than one year after, I still remember this month as if it was yesterday. I met friends for life.
Now the only thing I want is to come back. See you soon everyone, and one more time, thank you for everything!

A wonderful winter in Hokkaido

I particularly enjoyed my time studying Japanese at JALS in Sapporo. Not only did I have great teachers, I also made lots of friends from around the world through the program. The three hours of class for five days a week were perfect for a student like myself who wished to properly learn the language but also wanted time outside the classroom to explore and practice. Furthermore, the smaller class size of just a few students per teacher allowed me and my peers to get more chances to practice with teachers who in turn also got to know us better. With the program, I was also able to experience different aspects of Japanese culture through activities like kendo, flower arrangement, or sweets making. Depending on your budget and your interests, you can pick and choose the activities you want to do. The wintertime makes this program especially appealing as the city is blanketed in beautiful snow and ice festivals occur all throughout Hokkaido including the world renoun Sapporo Snow Festival. Overall, this program is a must not just because of the picturesque locale of wintertime Hokkaido but even more so because of the kind hospitality of the folks at the school, a trait shared by so many of wonderful people of Japan.

Amazing!

This was the second time I went to sapporo jals.
First time I made the winter course, and the second one just the course without the activities.
Teachers are friendly and helpful, And classes are made from few students, in this way lessons are intense, and you can improve your Japanese very fast.
I went two times to the sharehouse buie asabu. The keeper is willing and friendly, and the house is comfortable.
I hope I will able to come back as soon as possible.
また来年!
