I didn't see any intermediate classes in Ikoma right now, perhaps they will open a new one soon. For now my goal is to aim for N4 asap but it seems I have to complete Basic term 1 and 2, which takes about 40 sessions(?) then intermediate...
I don't think they list all the ongoing classes on the website. For basic and intermediate levels, more or less every weeknight got at least one class, plus multiple classes on weekends.

If you are totally fresh then yes, basic then n5 prep (optional) then n5 exam then intermediate then n4 prep (optional) then n4 exam.

If it's just the certificatation that you want then no need to take the prep courses also can pass one, n5/n4 passing mark is low.

If you already know some Japanese then you can make appointment to chit chat with one of the senseis to be placed halfway into an ongoing class.

The short answer is "it doesn't matter." if you don't like her then you can just switch to any other sensei / class throughout the week as you like.

First few weeks just jump around trying out different teachers then only settle down on one ba.

Having said that, personally I don't like Sato sensei so much. My favorites are Kobori, Motobayashi, Fukui and Nishina.
Dont forget Iwata sensei, she is one of the best teacher i have so far

Hi I'm new here, would ikoma work out if I can't commit to a fixed schedule? My concern is that I can't attend fixed classes as I have a retail shift schedule which makes it inconvenient.

Each 'cohort' typically has several classes a week (mon to fri 7pm to 10pm, sat/sun whole day of classes) so even if you can't attend your regular class you can attend a replacement class and won't be out of sync as the topics to be covered in each lesson is pre-defined.

Hi, i know the thread mostly discussing Ikoma and Bunka. But does anyone know any decent Japanese Language school in the East(e.g. Tampines or Paris ris)? Ikoma and Bunka are both in Orchard and quite far for me.

Thanks

Not really in the East, but Hougang Japanese Language School in Kovan is also quite popular;

I'm looking for a school with conversational practice in class, not just drilling books for passing JLPTs, anyone can comment on their experience in the following schools? As in, how much do they emphasis oral practice in class?

1. Bunka (I heard they place emphasis on oral skills)
2. Ikoma
3. JCS
4. (any other schools you have experience with)
