First japanese language teacher was a singaporean. Therefore my basic foundation very stable as singaporeans can explain better...wayyyyyyyy better than japanese teachers.

Then intermediate and advance follow up by the principle himself whom was a japanese but had migrated to singapore tens of yrs ago, married and start a family here.....therefore he can speak chinese (impressive) and hokkien (even more impressive). Therefore, i am lucky to have a native japanese that can explain damn well.

Anyway, that was at Hougang Japanese School. The Hougang branch was the first japanese school in singapore. Although the hougang branch looks dirty and ancient, do not let it deceive you. It is a rather good school and the teachers (according to my experience) are willing to go beyond the stipulated hours to teach and explain more if u request.

Btw, tat was almost 5 yrs ago.....JCS was not bad. Tried it this yr cos very near my workplace.

Had frens studying in bunka....i was not impressed with their so called 'patented' special learning method when i read thru the notes and heard the studying method adopted there. Found that the basic foundation would not be strong. But then that's my personal opinion. Never really tried myself so can't really judge.

I learn jap from Inoue Language school. Its located at Orchard Emerald, near somerset mrt, all teachers are native japanese. I dun agree that jap teacher speak bad english. Cos mine, Okubo sensei speaks very well. Check out their webbie: www.inoue.com.sg

Cheers,
Wil

Well, Im currently attending class @ Inoue as well... My Sensei does not speak much English -.-" Furthermore, one thing I do not like abt lesson there is that the classes always starts late... But definitely ends on time O.O Haha...

Valkyrie 03-12-2005 09:13 PM

hi, how much do u pay for the course in inoue? need to know when the course starts as well, thanks.

Wil 07-12-2005 01:27 PM

Hmm, think they jus raised to price to $400 per course, but if you stick with them for a year, you get an all expense paid trip to Japan, provided you pass the JLPT exam for your level lah. :D

The schedule, you'll have to call them up, 6333 3314.


Life is a choice, it might not be a choice you like, but nonetheless IT IS A CHOICE,
Will

sian, the inoue course started liao. I went to bunkalang yesterday. Not very impressed. In fact i think they are trying to teach english more than japanese. I think i go JCS instead.

kingz 07-12-2005 04:47 PM

So what are the teaching methods??? I also keen to learn jap, dunno which one is good.
