Google Review

"I spent 12 months at ARC academy and felt it was well worth the time. Learning is sometimes difficult given the nature of the material, but i felt that the instruction made it as simple as possible to understand the lessons. After 12 months I learned ten times what I would have learned if I continued to self study. I came from taking Japanese lessons at my University and the difference from coming to arc is huge. The teachers here are great and know how to properly teach people who are coming from a foreign language."
