ー All standardized courses require a non-refundable advance payment. We will wait until a minimum of seven people have signed up for the class to send out invoices. Venmo, PayPal, Zelle, and Navy Federal transactions are accepted.
ー This course consists of a series of ten high intensity lectures. Knowledge of the contents covered in our Japanese 101 course is a prerequisite.
ー We encourage you to attend lessons using a computer rather than a phone or a tablet, as the teacher will be often sharing her screen to show materials and write on a whiteboard. Please mute your microphone when you enter the class.
ー Lessons last one hour and are followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. At the end of each lesson you will receive a PDF handout, a link to an interactive flashcard list for all the vocabulary used in the handout, and a link to interactive exercises on Google Forms to practice in between lessons.
ー If the teacher is indisposed and cannot attend one or more classes, the duration of the course will be extended past October 12th.
ー If you need to set up a private tutoring session, please contact us at email@example.com. One-on-one tutoring sessions are available to course attendees for $30/hour (50% discount on standard rate) for the entire duration of the course.
