Whatever the professional context in which you may encounter Japanese speakers, a knowledge of the language is crucial to an understanding of the culture – as well as to ‘getting by’ on a daily basis. And although not everyone achieves mastery of the language, even a basic knowledge gives you a great insight into the way people think and the way things work.
Whether you’re at beginner level in Japanese, or whether you’ve done a little Japanese in the past, we’ll usually have a course which is suitable for you.
For beginners, our level one Japanese course is the perfect way to start off, regardless of the purpose of your study. Before you get on to any kind of business language, you have to cover the basics (you can’t really talk about sales figures until you’ve learnt to count up to 10 – and beyond!). And you really need to know how to handle transportation before you even reach an office…
You certainly do cover all the basics with Euroasia. However, unlike some courses, Euroasia’s Japanese courses are not focused exclusively on traveller-related vocabulary and situations. A high proportion of our clients study Japanese for business purposes, and therefore, as we move into higher levels, so we start to include a number of business-related topics. You’ll learn how to talk, in basic, but clear language, about your job, about the place where you work, even about problems at work! Our Japanese course outlines provide more information about what’s included at the various levels.
Not only will you learn the Japanese language, but you’ll also learn, from your native-speaker teacher, a good deal about Japanese culture.
Not surprisingly, given the composition of many of our classes, our teachers are accustomed to sharing their experiences of working life and practices in Japanese-speaking countries.
If your Japanese is at a pretty good level already, you may benefit from a short burst of intensive private tuition. Working on this one-to-one basis, your teacher will concentrate exclusively on your particular needs and expectations. Alternatively, Euroasia can also provide specific cross-cultural training to prepare you for life and work in a Japanese-speaking country.
