I'm a recent college grad from the US but I'm thinking about moving to Japan to make a long-term living there or maybe spend the rest of my life there. I have a BS degree in a science/technology field, so I can apply for those jobs once I know the language well enough.
I haven't taken any Japanese classes in the past, so I've also thought of enrolling in a language intensive program. Are there any good ones you guys recommend in Japan?
Also, does anyone know how long the visa application should take? I only know of Naganuma, which told me it could take 4-5 months. So if I applied now, I couldn't start the program until December. Anyone know if this is typical or if this school just takes really long?
