    Frequently asked questions

    The maximum number is 15 students per class, but on average our class sizes are around 6 students.
    Yes, you can! For new students with no Japanese experience, we also offer a hiragana and katakana mini course that runs simultaneously with your regular beginner Japanese course.

    In order to fully immerse students in the language, our teachers generally only speak in Japanese during class time. We find that this is the most effective way to quickly and accurately learn Japanese. However, for students with no experience attending our beginner courses, our teachers may provide limited explanations in English and a few other languages. Some digital contents may be translated in English, French and Spanish as well. We're also working on adding additional languages to support each new term.
    Yes, we can issue an official certficate of completion with our school stamp.
    Yes, we're happy to help! We have an online placement test we can give you to determine which Japanese course is best for you. Please contact us to request a placement test.
    For group lessons, absences can not be made up at a later date or credited back to you. However, as a courtesy, we can record the lesson if you contact us at least 24 hours before the class starts.
    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us. Enrolled students are given emergency contact information for online issues, absences, billing, and all other technical support.
