All my classmates who are studying in Ikoma with me have passed their N2, felt very delighted for them.
Some of us are still studying on a weekly basis.

i think its ok. I graduated from there.
Find the correct sensei, work hard then u will be alright.
Revise every week for 3-4 hours.
Last time, when i was studying beginner and intermediate Japanese, i studied every day for about 2-3 hours.

Hi i'm really interested in taking up Japanese classes but i'm considering between Bunka or Ikoma... Anyone can give me a breakdown of their pros and cons and maybe suggestion as to which one i should go for? ><

i think its a very hard question to answer.

Bunka students will tell you that Bunka is good.
Ikoma students will tell you that Ikoma is good.
Of course i will also tell you my school is good.

https://www.google.com.sg/webhp?sour...a%20vs%20bunka

Do you have prior knowledge of Japanese?
If you have a bit of knowledge, go to both schools, speak to the teachers there and see what they have to offer...

I would say both schools are good.
visit their websites, try to see the courses and schedules flexibility whether it match your lifestyle, make a trip down to both schools and see their environments, come up with YOUR own set of index and then sit down and weigh the pros and cons.

Which school tick the most boxes? The battle is half completed, the next half battle is yourself, as all the experts here will share that learning a 3rd Language is no easy feat as it requires talent, hard work and passion.
If you do not have 2 out of the 3 ingredients, I would say your 3rd language learning would not be sustainable.

Lastly, allow me to share this advice from my service last weekend.
"Hard work beats talent, when talent refuses to work hard"

Good luck

Hi all!

For those who registered for JLPT in person before, you just need to go there with the passport photos right? And can pay by cash?
