In depth: Our Japanese Courses for Business in Greater Manchester

Japanese Teaching Approach & Experience

Both professionals and non-professionals alike have seen great benefits from a SIMON & SIMON Japanese Language Course. SIMON & SIMON’s team of qualified Japanese teachers is made up of native speakers who average 15 years of experience. These teachers will make sure that a course is tailored for your specific needs so that you will benefit regardless of your language proficiency. Feedback from clients on our Japanese tutors is consistently highly positive. Our students are sent a profile containing information on their specific teacher’s experience and background before the start of their Japanese Lessons.

If the only experience you have of studying a language is from your time in school, you may not know that there has been a revolution in the teaching of modern languages so that it is both more fun and more worthwhile. Your Japanese teacher in Greater Manchester will be using the Communicative Approach, where your lessons will, with few exceptions, be conducted in Japanese. You will see your progress from that very first lesson and will soon be confident enough to conduct business or talk socially in Japanese.

1:1 and Group Japanese Courses in Greater Manchester

Our Japanese language courses are available on both a 1:1 and group basis, but the majority of our clients offer 1:1 Japanese training to their employees. However, with careful planning, group training can offer great value for money, provided there is a real commitment from the participants to get together at the same time every week. We strongly recommend you keep group numbers to 6 or less for these types of courses to be successful. Those learning Japanese in Greater Manchester on a 1:1 basis will naturally make much faster progress, as the course will be designed around their individual needs and focus on their particular strengths and weaknesses.

Japanese Course Management

Every SIMON & SIMON Japanese language course has a highly experienced, multi-lingual Account Manager who oversees it. When your Japanese course starts you will be sent a profile on your trainer, materials for your course and a Course Plan as well as a Progress Report for every 40 hours of training. Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter that you will also receive, contains a prize draw as well as weblinks to a number of learning resources.

Japanese Course Locations & Schedules

We have a global network of language trainers so our Japanese language courses can be arranged for almost any major European city, or even further abroad. SIMON & SIMON have run Japanese language courses for clients in many diverse locations. Japanese language courses can be run in your home for your convenience, but many of our clients prefer to run them in their offices so as to minimise travel.

Japanese Course Content

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.

About Japanese

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.

About Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county in North West England, with a population of 2.6 million. It encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and comprises ten metropolitan boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, and the cities of Manchester and Salford. Greater Manchester was created on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972.

Greater Manchester spans 496 square miles (1,285 km2). It is landlocked and borders Cheshire (to the south-west and south), Derbyshire (to the south-east), West Yorkshire (to the north-east), Lancashire (to the north) and Merseyside (to the west). There is a mix of high density urban areas, suburbs, semi-rural and rural locations in Greater Manchester, but overwhelmingly the land use is urban. It has a focused central business district, formed by Manchester city centre and the adjoining parts of Salford and Trafford, but Greater Manchester is also a polycentric county with ten metropolitan districts, each of which has at least one major town centre and outlying suburbs.

The Greater Manchester Urban Area is the third most populous conurbation in the UK, and spans across most of the county’s territory. For the 12 years following 1974 the county had a two-tier system of local government; district councils shared power with the Greater Manchester County Council.
