"Lesson in Progress" Sign.

I would like to put a sign on my office door that says "Lesson in Progress" in Japanese, so people are careful about entering the room while I am teaching.

What could I put on a simple sign?



Hi Owen,

A sign 「授業中」 will do the job :)

I typed it in a bigger font in here.

Oh, that's it? Thank you! I was afraid I needed something more polite. How about a sign for my entrance that says "Please ring bell" -- sometimes people knock but I can't hear them -- but I'm surprised that they don't ring the bell.

Yes, most of us understand what we are expected to do when we see the sign 「授業中」. As for the "Please ring bell", 「御用の方は呼び鈴をお使いください」 If the bell is a "modern button type", you can use 「御用の方はベルを押してください」 I found a website with the sign: On their website: 1)「御用の方はベルを押してください」(please press the the bell - it doesn't really make sense to me, but it's commonly used.) 2)「御用の方はボタンを押してください」 (please press the button) (They are free to download, although using old Microsoft Excel) Hope it helps!
