How long are Japanese lessons for adults?

Lessons usually last for a minimum of 90 minutes, although longer lessons are also available.

We can also arrange shorter lessons of 60 minutes online, or for children under 12, or if the student travels to the home of the tutor.

Due to the current circumstances, in 2021, most lessons are being delivered online.

Later on, students and tutors may choose to meet in person again (travel fees would be applied at the time, case by case).

How many lessons should I take?

Lessons are available in block bookings of 10 x 90 minutes, or more. I don’t believe that it is in the best interest of Japanese learners or tutors to make shorter block bookings.

What if I need to cancel a Japanese lesson at the last minute?

Please give at least 24 hours’ notice of change or cancellation to lessons. Any lesson cancelled by the Learner (or the Learner’s Parent or Guardian) with less than 24 hours’ notice, and not rescheduled, will incur a cancellation fee of 50% of the total lesson fee. This will apply to any lessons cancelled less than 24 hours in advance, for any reason. This fee is to reimburse the Tutor for their lost opportunity of work.

Lessons cancelled less than 3 hours in advance by the Learner will incur a cancellation fee of 100% of the total lesson fee. This will apply to any lessons cancelled less than 3 hours in advance, for any reason. This fee is to reimburse the Tutor for their lost opportunity of work.

Please try to reschedule lessons rather than cancelling, whenever possible.

Are private 1-1 Japanese lessons expensive?

For the price of a decent Japanese meal in a restaurant, every week you can experience so much more than just a full tummy! 🎌 🔜 🧠

A fast, efficient way to learn, your private 1-1 lessons will be at your level – no more wasting precious lesson time going over things you already know – or missing the point of something too difficult.

Group lessons can appear cheaper than private 1-1 tuition, but work much like gym memberships. It’s very easy to miss classes you’ve already paid for, and then hard to catch up, which can put you off returning.

Mottainai! What a waste!

I tried group Japanese lessons, but found I have so many more questions than a group setting could possibly accomodate. I’m a beginner, but really keen to make progress, so a private tutor is better for my needs. – CB, TV Producer, 2020
