Zoom Japanese Lesson Instructions

Current students, please follow the instructions below. For potential students, please contact us to schedule a free level check and consultation.

Step 1 : Download Zoom

You are not required to download Zoom and can join a classroom or consultation room from your web browser.

However, based on our experience, you do not get the full audio quality and stability of the chat through the web browser. Downloading the following software or app will help give you the full remote experience because Zoom is better than other video chat platforms.

PC download | IPHONE & IPAD App or Android App

Other Options :

Step 2 : Practice Using Zoom

We recommend testing your microphone and camera on zoom at

Most people figure things out within 5 minutes on their first attempt, but make sure to practice around 30 minutes before your lesson starts to ensure that everything is working properly. 

The video quality on zoom is much much better than other platforms, but the system is slightly more complicated than Facebook Messenger and Google Hangouts.

Step 3 : Visit Your Digital Classroom

Please visit your digital classroom 5 - 10 minutes before your lesson starts.

You will receive the link from our staff when you join Japan Switch or have confirmed your free consultation and level check

One major difference between Japan Switch and other zoom channels you may have joined in the past is that you will enter a lobby after clicking the link to Zoom. We will check your name to our roster and move you to the right classroom.

Common issues

1 : Make sure to enter your full name. Do not use a nickname or anything else that makes it hard to identify you. For example, we have 5 students named James, so first names also do not help!

2 : Your antivirus or firewall blocks zoom from opening up the video chat client. Make sure to test zoom in advance using the link shown above.

Step 4 : Lobby to Digital Classroom

Please be reminded that it might take a few minutes before they admit you in.
