    I took the Aoki course last year at Kanagawa, If you are interested in these course. The instructor was very competent and taught well, but you must remember this: The Japanese testing system almost always has a strange way of asking questions, very rarely are they straight forward questions but seem to approach from the side. This is not a result of a bad translation, it is just how they tend to ask questions for tests. Sometimes you should/must read the questions from two or three angles before answering it 🙂

    Hi Ken,
    Sorry to get back to you so late.
    I understand what you mean. This test is so complicated and difficult.
    But we can’t change anything since national qualifications.
    Hope this answer helps you.
