    Re: Not Invited to Enkais

    Also sometimes you won't be invited because the teachers think it would be an inconvenience to you to listen to them speak Japanese all the time.

    Re: Japanese language schools

    So I'm pretty sure this isn't a route I'm going to go down. I emailed several schools and only one actually replied.
    Thanks anyway!

    Re: Japanese language schools

    That's interesting. A few of the places I've looked at have limits on the number of people they take with the same mother tongue so that doesn't happen.

    Re: Kumon - anyone tried it?

    They send you a placement test. You can start from scratch if you tell them you're an absolute beginner when you apply.

    I like JLPT bootcamp's decks. They have all the vocabulary from each JLPT but everything that can be written in kanji is written in Kanji. I find it really useful to use them to learn kanji for words...

    Kumon - anyone tried it?

    Hey all,

    Has anyone tried the Japanese language course from Kumon? How is it? I'm thinking of giving it a go but finding reviews online is proving a little difficult.
