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.
  • Please note that the student attending the class must be at least 16 years old. If you are interested in language classes for children under the age of 16, we recommend our semi-private or private class options.
  • Occasionally we are required to replace an instructor, change the schedule and/or the location of a class. While we try to avoid these changes, we reserve the right to make them as needed.
  • Completion of these courses does not grant equivalence of the Japan Language Proficiency Test or any other test of Japanese skill. Parties interested in taking a proficiency test should contact the Japan Foundation in Los Angeles for more information.
  • Keep your receipt for tuition payment when you register online. Receipts for phone orders will be emailed to you, please keep for your records.
