You will have 20 classes Japanese per week plus 6 classes Business Japanese. This course is for people who plan to do an internship in Japan or conduct business with Japanese clients. The course focuses on Keigo (Japan’s business language), the Japanese business mind / manners and corporate role-plays.
Doing business in or with Japanese people requires a certain approach and understanding of the Japanese business mindset.
