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 November 14 (Sat), the tuition will be 45,000 yen in total because November 14 (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 November 12 (Thu), we will refund 45,000 yen because November 12 (Thu) is the 6th week of classes. (The calculation is 7,500 yen × 6 weeks = 45,000 yen) * You are responsible for applicable bank fees.
