Q&A

Do I need to prepare anything in advance?
Please make sure that your Internet connection works and download the videoconferencing app Zoom.
Link to download the videoconferencing app Zoom
I am worried about the quality of my Internet connection.
Prior to the acceptance of your payment and the start of lessons, we will do a video call with you to determine your Japanese language skill and check your Internet connection to confirm that the connection quality is sufficient for online lessons.
Can I join the course even after it has started?
Yes, you can. Tuition is calculated on a whole week basis. (It will start from Saturday.)
For example, if you want to start on February 26 (Sat), the tuition will be 45,000 yen in total because February 26 (Sat) is the 7 weeks ~12 weeks of classes. (The calculation is 7,500 yen × 6 weeks = 45,000 yen)
Can I quit in the middle of the term?
Yes—you can receive a refund for the weeks remaining in your term (calculated on a whole week basis).
For example, in the case that you quit on February 17 (Sat), we will refund 45,000 yen because February 17 (Sat) is the 6th week of classes. (The calculation is 7,500 yen × 6 weeks = 45,000 yen) * You are responsible for applicable bank fees.
※It costs you 1week tuition fee as cancellation in case you cancel the course in the middle of the term.
Is there a textbook?
Yes, there is. Your options for getting the textbook are as follows:
  1. Buying the textbook from a local vendor where you live
  2. Buying a digital version of the textbook
  3. Buying the textbook from the Kudan Institute and receiving it via mail or courier (You will need to pay for both the textbook and the applicable shipping fees)
    *Please contact us for the details.
How do I pay for the courses?
There are two ways to pay: 1. Bank transfer (international wire) 2. Flywire (online). You will need to pay for any bank charges or fees.
Can I get a certificate of completion?
We will issue and send you a scanned copy of the original certificate if your attendance rate is more than 80%. However, we cannot mail you a hard copy.

Impression of a participant

Ruby(Hongkong)
A Japanese course out of your expectation

In the beginning, I just wanted to learn about business Japanese. However, after joining this course, I’m learning about the business of Japanese manners and a couple of Japanese cultures. So it’s really out of my expectation!
Kudan’s teachers put a lot of effort into this course, and they can easily explain complicated grammar and business Japanese to me.
I love their small-class teaching, where teachers can make personal comments and advice to each student.
Even though I’m in Hong Kong, I can finish this course online. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to enhance my Japanese, and I really recommend this course to those who want to learn business Japanese!

Beata(Lithuania)

I am very glad to have taken this course.
It helped me build communication skills in formal Japanese and gain practical knowledge about job search, interview processes, current trends in Japanese job market, workplace culture and business etiquette with ample opportunity to put theory into practice.
Many thanks to all the teachers!

Pancha(India)

Kudan's Business-Japanese course was incredibly enjoyable. Despite the course being online, it felt like we were actually in the classroom.
Although I had internet connection issues at home, the teachers were very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure I didn’t miss out. Other than the course contents, teachers also introduced us to Japanese job-hunting resources (websites, recruiting companies' points of view, etc.)
I’ve always been under the impression that Japanese corporate culture was extremely complicated, but thanks to this course, I realized that it can certainly be understood and worked with.
