Group Class Policies

Please read carefully before enrolling in the classes

  • Class Change After Registration: Before the third week of the term, students may change class levels with the instructor’s approval. To request a change, please contact the Japan Society Language Class Coordinator by email to [email protected] .
  • Class Cancellation After Registration: Before the end of the second week of the term, students may cancel a class and receive a prorated refund of the class tuition. After that, tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable for any reason. Please note that membership fees paid at the time of registration are non-refundable. Requests for tuition refunds may be made by email to [email protected] .
  • Language classes will continue with a minimum of five students enrolled. If, due to unforeseen circumstances, a class is cancelled, students already enrolled will receive a full refund.
  • Classes cancelled due to holidays or teacher emergencies will be rescheduled.
  • If there are no students present within the first 20 minutes of the scheduled class, the class will be cancelled and will not be rescheduled.
  • Student contact information collected from the registration process may be given to the instructor of the class for teaching and emergency purposes.
