Pair lessons are single lessons taken at the same time with your friend, partner or family member. Studying with a partner can be great fun, but of course both people need to be at around the same level of Japanese proficiency, since you'll be studying the same material with us. If you do have somebody around your level who you can study with though, then this can be a great way to learn Japanese together at a significant discount! The pair lesson offer is only available for single lessons though, and it can't be combined with a 10 lesson pack. This is just to avoid complications if one of you can no longer join.
Lessons will typically run for 1 hour, unless a custom duration has been requested. We can make adjustments to lesson times to suit as requested, but we think that 1 hour is the ideal timeframe.
Our preferred payment method is cash. However, we also accept bank transfers (in advance).
Our lessons are held in our home-classroom, in Parramatta. For privacy reasons, our full address is not listed on our website, but we will send this to you well in advance of your lesson. Generally, our policy is to not have lessons outside of our home-classroom, since all of our lesson materials are available here. We can make exceptions in extreme circumstances, though.
No problem! Your payment covers you for 10 lessons. When you take those lessons is completely up to you. Just give us a reasonable amount of notice (a day) and we'll reschedule your lesson for you. Rescheduling lessons does not cost you anything, so long as it's done with reasonable notice.
This only depends on your availability and that of your Japanese teacher. You're able to take a lesson per week, a lesson per day or even two lessons back-to-back so long as there aren't any clashes with other students.
Our normal lesson times are from 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday, with on-demand lessons available on weekends.
Normally just one - YOU! While there can be some advantages to larger class numbers once you reach a certain level of proficiency, for the most part, we want to give you 100% of your teacher's time to maximise the value of each lesson. If you are interested in taking a group lesson, please let us know and we will try to organise one for you. By default however, all of our lessons are private.
You can bring along a friend though and take advantage of our pair lesson offer.
Unfortunately, we don't offer a trial lesson, but for newcomers, we would suggest starting out with a single lesson and then move on to a larger package after you've seen how fun our classes are! ☺
We offer a complimentary over-the-phone level check which runs from 5-20 minutes, depending on your level of prior knowledge. By the end of your level check, your Japanese teacher will advise you of which class to start from.
Understandably, sometimes circumstances change and you're not able to continue your learning, at least for now. If that happens, if you've paid for 10 lessons and have at least 2 lessons remaining, we will refund the package value of your remaining lessons, minus the package value of one lesson as a processing fee. Unfortunately, we do not refund single lessons.
Yes, we do! In addition to face to face lessons at our home classroom, we also offer online lessons via zoom. There isn't any difference in pricing or materials - it's completely up to you and what learning mode you prefer.
