Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much does it cost?
    Tuition, registration, and textbooks are charged separately. The fees are as follows: $200 for tuition, $30 for first time registration fee, and $27 for the textbook. However, please note that the textbooks usually lasts for about five courses. See materials section in the schedule page for more information. Thus, a typical Beginners class would cost $257 altogether.

  • Do I have to buy texts for each class?
    Not neccessarily. For example, a Beginner's class text will last for about five consecutive classes (over half a year).

  • When do I need to register for a class?
    You can register anytime. However the max enrollment for any adult class is 15 and once the limit is reached, the class is closed for further registration.

  • What happens after I complete a class?
    If you'd like to continue with your studies, the next level class is usually available at the same time, with the same instructor.

  • What if I have studied Japanese before?
    We suggest that you call or e-mail us to figure out which class would work best for you.
  • What will I learn in the class?
    In a typical 7-week class you will initially learn a “survival level” of Japanese--basic greetings and basic conversation. Although there is an emphasis on conversation you will also learn the fundamentals of reading and writing.

  • What are the teacher’s qualifications?
    All teachers are native speakers of Japanese and most are trained at the Tenrikyo Language Institute in Japan.
