Japanese Courses for Business in Brighton

Private individuals and professionals in companies all over the UK have profited from undertaking a Japanese Language Course with SIMON & SIMON. Averaging 15 years of experience, our native Japanese speaking qualified teachers construct your course so that your individual requirements are met, no matter what your level of experience. Our Japanese teachers receive excellent feedback from our clients. A profile, containing information about the Japanese teacher’s background and experience, is sent to each student before the Japanese lessons start.

If you have only studied languages before at school you will find that teaching approaches to modern language training have changed enormously in recent years - it's now a lot more fun and a far more rewarding experience! Your teacher will conduct your Japanese lesson in Brighton almost entirely in Japanese - a method known as the Communicative Approach - and you will find yourself making progress from the very first lesson and soon growing in the confidence to communicate in Japanese in a variety of social and business situations.

Both 1:1 and group formats are available for our Japanese language courses. While most of our clients offer 1:1 Japanese training, the group format can offer great value for money. If you want groups to be successful, the members must commit to the weekly meetings and we recommend keeping the number of participants below 7. Progress is faster for those who learn Japanese in Brighton on a 1:1 basis as the lessons are individually tailored for their particular needs, strengths and weaknesses.

Japanese Course Management

SIMON & SIMON’s Japanese language courses all have a specific Account Manager who oversee the course. Each of these managers is highly experienced and multi-lingual. At the start of your Japanese course, you will receive a profile on your trainer, course materials and a Course Plan. After every 40 hours of training you will receive a Progress Report. We will also send you our quarterly newsletter, Breaking the Language Barrier, which contains a wonderful prize draw as well as weblinks to valuable language learning resources.

SIMON & SIMON has arranged Japanese language courses for clients in numerous locations, and with our global network of language trainers we can organise a Japanese language course for you wherever you are - in almost any major city in the UK, Europe and beyond. The vast majority of our Japanese lessons take place at our clients' offices, removing the need for you to travel, but Japanese lessons can take place in your home if that is more convenient. We can also arrange full-time residential Japanese language courses for you - just contact our office for information on available destinations.

Brighton Japanese Course Schedules

Our Japanese language courses in Brighton go on all year. Some of our students attend more than one 90-minute weekly session if work circumstances allow, and most will attend at least one per week. Weekend Courses in Japanese can be arranged on request. Our Japanese courses are available 12 hours a day, from 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday. 30 hour per week intensive Japanese courses can be held on clients’ premises or in residential centres in the UK or abroad. These courses take 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

We will tailor your Japanese language course for your specific aims and level of knowledge. Before you start your Japanese language course we will assess your goals and level of Japanese experience. Your desire to learn Japanese may be simply to develop basic skills, or you may have some level of proficiency and wish to increase your ability to use Japanese to discuss business. You may want to develop your language skills so that you can use Japanese in negotiations and meetings or improve your pronunciation and telephone skills. No matter what goals you have, you can be confident of our Japanese trainers experience and that your Japanese language course is tailored to your needs and your goals will be quickly met.

Japanese Language Examination Courses

Our students’ pass rate for Japanese examinations is at 95%, and we are happy to help with the preparations for any such examination. Our high pass rate shows the value of working with Japanese teachers in Brighton who have a higher level of experience than average. SIMON & SIMON also arrange registration for Japanese examinations as well as administering the examination and issuing the results.

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions accross the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their language trainer can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise the language in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.

Back to top of Japanese Courses Brighton

Japanese is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities. Dozens of dialects are spoken in Japan. The profusion is due to many factors, including the length of time the archipelago has been inhabited, its mountainous island terrain, and Japan's long history of both external and internal isolation. The main distinction in Japanese accents is between Tokyo-type and Kyoto-Osaka-type, though Kyūshū-type dialects form a third, smaller group. Within each type are several subdivisions. Kyoto-Osaka-type dialects are in the central region, with borders roughly formed by Toyama, Kyōto, Hyōgo, and Mie Prefectures; most Shikoku dialects are also that type. The final category of dialects are those that are descended from the Eastern dialect of Old Japanese; these dialects are spoken in Hachijō-jima island and a few others.

Brighton is the major part of the city of Brighton and Hove (formed from the previous towns of Brighton, Hove, Portslade and several other villages) in East Sussex on the south coast of Great Britain. For administrative purposes, Brighton and Hove is not part of the non-metropolitan county of East Sussex, but remains part of the ceremonial county of East Sussex, within the historic County of Sussex. The ancient settlement of Brighthelmstone dates from before Domesday Book (1086), but it emerged as a health resort featuring sea bathing during the 18th century and became a destination for day-trippers from London after the arrival of the railway in 1841. Brighton experienced rapid population growth, reaching a peak of over 160,000 by 1961. Modern Brighton forms part of the Brighton/Worthing/Littlehampton conurbation stretching along the coast, with a population of around 480,000. Brighton has long been renowned throughout the UK and Europe as gay-friendly, and is home to a large LGBT community. Eight million tourists a year visit Brighton. The city has a substantial business conference industry regularly hosting the Liberal Democrats, Labour Party, Conservative Party and Trade Union annual conferences. Brighton has two universities and a medical school.
