Now I am sure which school I should suggest to my friends. My weakness of Japanese has gone because of ALA. I had so many chances to practice the learned contents that right away. ALA is the best place to acquire practical Japanese. Teachers and staff are very supportive so you will not feel homesick ever!

The school is amazing in it's education and also the teachers and staff who work here are passionate and want to help the students no matter what issue it may be.The classroom could need an update when it comes to the interior though. Looks a bit worn out and they would need a bit higher desks since it's very low for slightly taller students.Also an open wifi would be nice even if I understand that they won't want you to use your phone during lessons but it is very helpful for dictionaries and looking up part-time jobs while in school. (They do have a laptop which the students can use but it's so incredibly slow we'd be better of with our phones)
