The majority of language schools charge a fixed-rate registration fee for all courses, regardless of type or duration. This registration or enrollment fee is not an extra fee for using our booking service. It is a fee charged by the school and every student who attends the school has to pay it. Whether you register through us or directly at the school, you will have to pay this fee. You can find the fee listed in the school's brochure or website. It is usually referred to as: registration fee, enrollment fee or administration fee. When comparing prices make sure that all these costs from the school are included.
Yokohama: Situated south of Tokyo on Tokyo Bay, Yokohama is Japan's second most populated city, after Tokyo. Up until the mid 1800's, Yokohama was a small fishing village but with the influx of foreigners it rapidly became the base of foreign trade in Japan and to this day, while being unquestionably Japanese, it remains popular among expats, is home to the largest Chinatown in Japan and preserves some former Western residences in the Yamate district.
