Both group and private lessons
Many companies initially contact us requesting private lessons with the idea that private lessons mean more speaking time therefore more effective. But private lessons are not necessarily the best option for students.
- Private lessons run up the cost of each individual students for the company.
- The availability of the teachers do not always match with the busy schedules of students.
- With private lessons once a week, the effectiveness is severely limited.
All this and more means that there are demerits to private lessons.
JOI's FlexLessons surpass private lessons in terms of merit and effectiveness.
So especially for cost-effectiveness and flexibility, we strongly recommend the FlexLessons.
The merits of FlexLessons (maximum 7 students group classes)
For the cost of one private lesson (2500 yen), students can take 5 FlexLessons (from 500 yen per lesson)
*Within these 5 lessons, students can take Conversation, Grammar Kanji, Business, Listening or JLPT lessons - with obvious advantages.
Our team of professional teachers has created a curriculum (Level Track™) which enables students to progress effectively.
*Private lessons' effectiveness is largely influenced by the individual teacher's ability
Teachers and Content
With FlexLessons, the students can select their teachers and lesson content to suit their individual needs.
With the private lessons, there is the possibility of students not matching the tutor's style and lesson content.
With the group lessons, there is the added bonus of mutual encouragement, learning from fellow students and improving communication from within the environment.
*With the private lessons, the conversations are solely with one teacher.
With FlexLessons, the students can use the flexibility of the time schedules provided for all levels at JOI.。
*With the private lessons, the lesson times are limited to their teacher's availability.
FlexLessons = Modular style
With the common style of course-based, linear learning, asany espoused by online and offline schools the courses can be rigid. But busy students can take FlexLessons following their own schedule, at their own pace. No start dates, no fixed schedule. Take a break when needed, and later pick up where they left off.

All classes start on the hour and are 50 minutes long. Please see our latest schedule times.
