Your Japanese language training

All our Business Japanese courses are based on what learners need to do – from building a foundation in the language to learning Keigo for advanced business purposes.

Courses reflect the scenarios they will use the language in and develop the appropriate language skills – including structure, vocabulary, the different scripts, and communicative skills..

General and Business Language Training

Our general and business language training provides practical instruction for everyday business tasks, such as participating effectively in meetings, going on successful business trips, understanding and then writing emails, discussing business on the phone, and better social language skills.

Cross-Cultural Communication Skills

Understanding how the Japanese approach business, their values and their expectations is crucial to engaging successfully with Japanese companies. Our trainers will give you invaluable insight on how to maximise your business relationships with clients, suppliers, and counterparts based in Japan.

Industry-Specific Language Training

Our Japanese language trainers have the experience and expertise to deliver specialist courses. These may be sector-specific, such as training lawyers and diplomats, or with a focus on particular tasks, such as delivering a business presentation to a Japanese audience.
