I haven't regretted joining Ikoma. Do note that the teachers do understand English even if they don't speak it in class. In the Basic levels, you can still ask them questions in English and they will reply in Japanese. In addition, the grammar and vocabulary notes have English and Chinese translation.

In any case, there should be minimal use of English as you progress so whether the teacher speaks English or not should not be an issue.
Totally agree!

I would recommend beginners to have a first aim (N5 level) to be able to basically express yourself 10 ~ 20% of your first language capability.
