Everybody can benefit from our general Japanese courses - they endeavour to give the learner fluency in general Japanese conversation, whether through learning the basics or improving existing skills. General courses concentrate mainly on sharpening up grammar and vocabulary, and aim to expand the ability to speak, read and listen Japanese with full comprehension. These courses will be most suitable for those who want to improve their Japanese to a practicable level, or as a basis for a business Japanese course.
Listen & Learn's general Japanese courses for groups are a great option for groups of 2-12 colleagues or friends who are at the same level in studying Japanese. Your group should have similar learning goals and be available to study at the same time and location every week. The courses are tailored to suit the group's level, no matter how elementary or advanced. General courses aim to give students knowledge of common Japanese that would be used in real scenarios. Your teacher will cover a lot of grammar and vocabulary, as well as give you ample opportunities to practise your reading, listening, and speaking skills. General group Japanese courses are great for groups who would like to begin learning Japanese, or improve on existing skills and knowledge. These courses are also highly recommended as a first step for companies who would like their employees to move on to a business language course once they have a working knowledge of Japanese.
1-to-1 business Japanese courses can really help you get ahead, whether you are relocating abroad, looking for work in a foreign country, or simply if you work for a multinational organisation. These courses are mainly aimed at learners who already possess a decent working Japanese knowledge and who want to build on these in order to use their Japanese skills in a business environment. The course is fully customised to take into account not only your learning needs, but also the appropriate industry's vocabulary and any particular skills the role demands, such as report writing or formal correspondence.
Group business Japanese courses are intended for small groups (of 2 to 12 students) who already have a working knowledge of Japanese, and want to extend their skills in the arena of business language. Your group should have approximately the same level of Japanese, whether that be intermediate, upper intermediate, or advanced. You should all be available at the same time every week, and have complementary learning aims. Your trainer will develop your course around your group's language goals and particular field of business, and can incorporate any specific areas of focus, such as improving negotiation or presentation skills. Group business language courses are suitable for a wide range of organisations, including multinational companies, and those whose employees require a higher level of Japanese to develop international business relationships.

"I really enjoyed the program of my Japanese course. Eiko was really organized with my lessons and really professional. She has been as pleasant and as reliable as she has been since I started. I wish I can continue with the course, but I will be moving to Taiwan very soon. I really appreciate your help! Best Regards, Johnny,"
