JETAABC is pleased to announce that it is organizing the Fall 2014 JET Alumni Japanese language course! If you are interested and want to take free Japanese lessons, read on and then sign up at http://goo.gl/TOLFAk bySeptember 5, 2014.
FALL 2014 TERM – DATES, TIMES, PLACES, AND LEVEL
The Fall 2014 course will be 10 classes-long and run on Tuesday evenings from 6pm to 8pm. Classes are scheduled to begin in the middle of September (exact start date TBD).
The course is scheduled to take place at the Japanese Consulate in Vancouver (Suite 900-1177 Hastings St West, Vancouver, BC).
The level will be determined based on the proficiency of the applicants.
The classes are a great way to reconnect with the JET community, and to dust off those old nihongo skills.
TUITION AND ATTENDANCE POLICY
The classes are free. As part of our proposed funding agreement, however, our generous sponsors require that there be at least 10 students per class.
In order to encourage attendance, each student must provide a $150 deposit the first day of class. Each student is entitled to three “free” absences during the 10-class term. Each further absence entail a $20 “absentee fee”. Any outstanding absentee fees will be due on or before the last day or class, and any absentee fees may be deducted from your $150 deposit. Thus, if you attend 7 or more classes, you entire deposit will be returned to you.
Students may be asked to pay for copies of lesson materials. The class also features a JETAABC Japanese Language Course blog, which we invite you to check out http://goo.gl/cxSwf1.
