Our general Japanese language courses are suitable for learners of any level. They aim to enable communication in everyday situations and are an ideal way to improve your knowledge of Japanese, whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned speaker. A general course focuses predominantly on grammar and vocabulary, supported by development of speaking, reading, and listening skills. General courses are ideal if you want to attain or improve on an all-round level of Japanese, or build a strong foundation before moving on to business Japanese training.
For a group of 2 to 12 people who need to gain the same level of Japanese fluency in a given time, Listen & Learn's general group courses are just the thing. So long as the entire class is able to assemble at the same time and location each week and are roughly all at the same level at the start of the course, our group courses will help students gain fluency in everyday conversational Japanese and also gain a good working knowledge of the language. With their main focus on expanding vocabulary and grammar, a general group course is an excellent place to start for those wishing to engage in further Japanese study in the future.
One-to-one business Japanese courses are aimed at learners who already have at least a working knowledge of Japanese, but would like to further develop their skills in business communication. Our courses can be adapted to focus on your particular industry, and your trainer can help you with specific areas of skill development, such as report-writing, dictation, or business correspondence. Business Japanese courses are great for any professionals who would benefit from further knowledge of Japanese, including those working in multinational companies, preparing for international transfer, or seeking a new position. Many of our business students work in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, academia, and government.
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.
Specific purposes Japanese courses are a great boon to people who have already studied Japanese and wish to develop certain facets of their Japanese skills. This can include an array of helpful guidance, including the following:
• Vocabulary related to the industry (legal, HR, engineering, accounting, medical etc.)
• Accent softening and elocution
• Expanding upon existing aspects (writing, speaking, listening, reading etc.)
• Language for travelling
• Communication skills in business (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Writing skills in business (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Historical and cultural sensitivity
If your group of 2-12 Japanese learners require the same set of particular skills as well as a standard language course, our specific purpose group Japanese courses can really help make a difference. So long as the whole group is at about the same stage of learning Japanese, we can help improve their overall understanding by arranging classes focusing on improving the following:
• Elocution and softening of native accent
• Improving specific skills (writing, comprehension, listening, etc.)
• Language for international travel
• Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Vocabulary for relevant industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Cultural and historical sensitivity
"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,"
