FAQ

About Member Registration and Cancellation

Q. I am not a Japanese teacher. Can I still sign up?

See answer

A. You can register even if you are not teaching Japanese. However, since Teaching Materials ひろば is a website for those giving instruction in Japanese, it is not suited for those who are looking to start studying Japanese.

Q. There is only one email address for the company, but there are three people in charge of Japanese language instruction.
