But I wanted to mention another factor that is often overlooked when comparing language schools, the length of classes. Most schools offer either 3 or 4 classes per day as their core package, and of course a school offering 4 classes should be a third more expensive than a school offering only 3 classes per day. But it’s important to check the length of each class as well. Most schools run 45-minute classes. At Genki Japanese, however, our classes are 50 minutes long each. Let’s do the math:
4 classes per day, 45 minutes each = 15 hours per week
4 classes per day, 50 minutes each = 16 hours 40 minutes per week
Difference: 1 hour 40 minutes, or 11% extra per week!
So even if two schools are priced the same, if one of them offers 50-minute classes, you get 11% more study time!
Does this mean that our teachers work harder than teachers at other schools? We like to think so, and it’s all for you! If you need any more information, check out Genki Japanese language school website, or email us!
