Don’t let the Coronavirus stop you from learning Japanese with Pasona Education!

During class suspension, we are offering online lessons via Zoom and Google Classroom to replace face-to-face lessons, so you can study Japanese safely at home or at work. Please kindly note that these online lessons count towards your course duration, so it is important for you to attend these online sessions.

Google Classroom
The details for using Google Classroom will be announced shortly.

Zoom
1. Download the “Zoom Client for Meetings” software (for PC) from https://zoom.us/download or the “Zoom Cloud Meetings” app (for mobile) from App Store or Google Play.
2. We will SMS you the Meeting ID for your class before your lesson.
3. 2-3 minutes before your lesson, open the program and enter the provided Meeting ID.
4. Set your display name with your name, e.g., Bonnie.
5. Allow the program to access your microphone and camera.
6. Start lesson!

Free Zoom Practice Session
We would like to offer you a free online session with us between February 28 and March 5 to help you familiarize the online Zoom Classroom  system.

As classes held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays have already started before Chinese New Year, the Practice Session will last for 1 hour, 1.25 hours or 2.5 hours, depending on the original lesson duration. Students can then review the contents of the first lesson.

However, as the remaining classes haven’t started yet, the Practice Session will last for 30 minutes so they can greet each other.

The schedule for the Free Zoom Practice Session is shown as below :
