Details

Doing business in or with Japanese people requires a certain approach and understanding of the Japanese business mindset. Japan has a lot of unique ways how people conduct business and also communicate with each other. One of these characteristics is the Japanese Business language called Keigo. We will dig into these special features of this mysterious language, practice a lot of real life business situations as well as teach you all the essential rules you need to know to avoid putting your foot in your mouth (literally).We will practice in a variety of situations, such as:

  • Visiting a company and see how work is organized
  • Visit a financial institution and get an inside view of a Japanese bank
  • Understand how the hierarchy between superior and trainee works
  • Learn the 101 on job hunting in Japan
  • Interview Japanese people about different topics
  • Get expert training for a real Japanese job interview
