Our general courses are a good place to start your Japanese studies, or to improve upon your current skills. They give focused attention to expanding your day-to-day grammar and vocabulary, enabling you to improve your spoken and written Japanese with relative speed and ease. General courses best suit those wishing to improve their Japanese to conversational level, as well as students who hope to continue their Japanese studies to a more advanced level.
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.
With our one-to-one Japanese business courses, you can develop your current Japanese skills to incorporate them effortlessly into your job - perfect for those employed by multinational organisations, moving abroad to work, or in search of employment overseas. Lessons are designed around your sector of industry and field of work, and tutors can aid learners in improving individual skills required by your role, such as giving presentations, writing reports or composing formal written correspondence.
Designed for groups of 2-12 learners, our business Japanese group courses are tailormade for the students (and industry) in question. All members of the class should be at the same approximate level of Japanese at the start of the course, able to meet at a regularly-scheduled time and place, and should all have similar learning aims within the language. Lessons focus on enhancing and strengthening core Japanese skills which will help in the professional arena, such as specific vocabulary usage and developing the ability to perform many different tasks in a new language (for example, giving a first-rate presentation, or the right way to compose formal business communication).
Specific purpose courses in Japanese are aimed at those who already have semi-proficient skills in Japanese but wish to improve in particular areas of expertise. Your teacher can guide you through many features of Japanese to help you gain fluency, linguistic or not. These may include:
• Accent softening / pronunciation
Developing existing aptitude for writing, reading, listening, speaking, etc.
• Language for international travel Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. proposals, reports, formal correspondence)
• Vocabulary for particular industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Understanding historical and cultural context
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,"
