Japademy is perfect for beginners!!
"I’ve never been able to fast track my learning so well than with Japademy’s classes. Learning apps and online videos don’t nearly help you fast track as much as her interactive live classes."

Better than Duolingo for learning Japanese...
"After trying to learn Japanese using Duolingo for a few months, I noticed that I wasn't really learning. Once I came across Japademy, I was excited about learning as many things as they claim for a 10 weeks course. After completing it, I can say the course really covers all the topics it mentions, which is great but at the same time means the speed of learning is much higher than what I was expecting. Anyways, I recommend it!"

I love how much I have learned!
"I have completed 2 courses so far with Japademy and I’m about the start the third one. I’ve gone from absolutely beginner (knowing nothing at all) to learning all hiragana, katakana and learning lots of important vocabulary as preparation for my future trip to Japan."

Highly recommended for those who want to learn Japanese!
"Japademy has great classes and teachers! The material is great for traveling, especially. All the lessons have taught me how to properly communicate with Japanese people. The teachers are interactive, and very kind! They are enthusiastic to answer any questions. It is very immersive and gives all students chances to practice pronunciation."

Frequently asked questions

How do the Japanese courses for foreign employees work?

Our 5-week Japanese courses for foreign employees feature two live online lessons per week, each lasting 105 minutes. Our native Japanese teachers follow a structured approach, introducing new topics and grammar in each lesson. Employees then have ample opportunity to practice and solidify their understanding throughout the class.

Do you offer placement tests to determine the appropriate course for my company employees?

Yes, we do!  We provide your company with an online placement test that your employees can complete in just 10-15 minutes. They'll receive immediate results to determine the most suitable course level.

How many participants are typically in each online lesson?

Each course typically has only 4-6 participants, allowing us to deliver a personalized and tailored learning experience. This sets us apart from other programs with larger class sizes.

What is the deadline for my company to pre-enrol employees?

For our upcoming intake, your company should complete pre-enrolment by August 1st. Payment can be completed before August 19th to receive our Early-bird discount. The last date for payment is on August 31st.

Will my company employees learn with a native Japanese teacher?

Absolutely! All our Japanese teachers are native speakers and fully certified as professional Japanese language instructors. This sets us apart from other learning platforms where teachers may be native speakers but lack formal teaching qualifications.

How many hours a week do my company employees need to dedicate to the course?

In addition to the two weekly 105-minute live lessons, we recommend that employees dedicate at least an additional 90 minutes per week to independent study. We provide access to vocabulary flashcards and video lessons to help them review material covered in the live sessions.

What payment methods do you accept for employee enrolment?

We offer several convenient payment options. You can pay via credit/debit card through Stripe on our website, or through direct transfer using PayPal or Wise. We send you an invoice for payment in USD or JPY, based on your preference.

Are there any additional costs, such as for books and other materials?

Not at all. We provide employees with exclusive Japanese learning material created by our native Japanese teachers. As a partner, your company doesn't need to purchase any books nor pay for the materials we provide your employees with.

How often will my company receive progress reports on my company employees' performance?

Upon course completion, your company will receive via email a progress report, including company employee attendance, lessons completion, course assessment scores, and teacher feedback.

Does my company have to sign a long-term contract?

Not at all. We don't force your company to over commit to long-term contracts. We understand your company's goals and workforce are dynamic. This also drives us to deliver the best value to your company in order to deserve a healthy long-term partnership.
