I just completed the Intermediate 4 Intensive course at Coto. It’s been a great month and I’m happy to say that I notice a difference in how much I can read in my daily life and the grammer that I am using in conversation. I really liked the way the course was structured, with kanji, grammer and conversation practice. We had three different teachers during the course and all of them have been fantastic. The staff at Coto has been very welcoming and it’s a great space to work in. It’s nice that you can stick around and do some homework after class in the common areas. I’m looking forward to taking the part-time courses from August onwards.
