Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) General Japanese

These Japanese lessons fit a broader spectrum, and can be useful for those who need different things from the language. Most beginner students will have a handle of survival Japanese by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough Japanese to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions. Typical students have been those eager to travel all over the world, those buying overseas property, those with foreign spouses, aficionados of Japanese culture and those who just wish to pass a particular Japanese exam.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business Japanese

These Japanese lessons are driven towards people who have a requirement to learn Japanese to bolster their work output. For novices, you will find it useful to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and once you have become more proficient then reading and writing will come to the fore. Typical students include those concerned with import/export, those seeking work in multinational companies, international negotiations, and anyone working with international colleagues or administration. Even on our most rudimentary beginners lesson, students can expect to finish the lesson with decent telephone and e-mail Japanese, as well as a good enough grip on the language for a short trip to the country.
