      If you want to learn a language - Japanese, English, Korean, Mandarin, French, German, Italian, Spanish or Malay - you may think of Inter-Cultural Language School, as it is one of the most famous language school in Kuala Lumpur. However, before you sign up for a course with them, allow me to share my experience at this center with you guys.

      I started learning Japanese here. They have native speakers to teach us, which is great, because I


      get to learn their accent. One problem is that these native speakers cannot speak in other languages, so I often have problems understanding what the teacher wants from us. Often me and my course mates have to playing guessing game in class as we cannot understand.

      Also, I find them very commercialized. There are three types of writing for Japanese - Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. Kanji is the most difficult but it is used very frequently in Japan,


      • so it becomes pretty pointless to learn Japanese without learning Kanji. At this center, I had completed two levels but they had not taught us a single Kanji, so even though I can converse, I cannot read. I find it really frustrating. It defeats the purpose of learning Japanese. Furthermore, it is expensive to learn here. You pay about RM300 for a course.

        Also, the certificate they issued is not recognised internationally. We sit for internal tests.

        I now learn Japanese somewhere else. It is a much smaller learning center but they teach Kanji and I will be sitting for the international test, JLPT. The fees I pay here is even cheaper than what I pay at ICLS.

        So I suggest that if you really want to learn a language, famous and bigger centers does not necessarily promise you better outcomes. Get more advices and opinions and do more researches before you make a decision.
