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

Japanese lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival Japanese - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying Japanese usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these Japanese classes have been those investing in or buying property overseas, those married to overseas nationals, people setting off on a round-the-world trip, enthusiasts in Japanese culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam in Japanese.

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.
