Was thinking of doing one of these this summer since my Japanese has basically stagnated since I got here. Has anyone done one in the past? Any recommendations?

Are you trying to get some jlpt on your resume or just improve generally?

Improve generally, don't care about JLPT at all.

Go talk to stupid women in bars all summer.

Sounds like a plan.

Seriously, late 20s/early 30s women on the town are great, they don't have the capacity to parse shitty Japanese into what you're trying to say and they can barely string together "my name is Sakura" in English, so you have to actually use Japanese. However if you can pull it out you'll end up having much more fun than if you hang out with the weirdo losers who learned English because they can't get Japanese friends/partners.

Remember of course that attractive intelligent women who speak English have probably been abroad enough to recognize you for the creepy nerd you actually are.

This a million times, with ONE caveat: I've noticed some of those same chicks are emotionally/mentally broken. Maybe thats why they went overseas, or were broken overseas.
