If your only previous experience of learning a language is what you remember from school, then you’re in for a treat. Teaching Approaches for Modern Language Training have changed enormously in recent years, it is now considered far more fun and rewarding, a far cry from what you will remember of learning a language at school. Your Japanese Course in London will be conducted almost entirely in Japanese, a modern teaching method known as the Communicative Approach. Adopting the Communicative Approach, you will find yourself making progress from your very first session and soon you will have such confidence to use your new Japanese skills in a range of authentic situations.

In depth: Our Japanese Courses for Business in London

1:1 and Group Japanese Courses in London

Our Japanese Courses in London can either be arranged on a 1:1 or group basis. While the majority of our clients will choose to opt for a 1:1 Japanese Course, group sessions prove to be great value for money. Although group sessions are good value, they will require the commitment of all those involved, and participant numbers should not exceed 6 candidates per course. If you require faster progress then a 1:1 Japanese Course in London will be better suited to your requirements, as the course can be fully customised to the individuals needs while focusing on their specific strengths and weaknesses.

Japanese Course Management

All of SIMON & SIMON’s Language Courses are overseen by one of our highly experienced and multi-lingual Account Managers. Before the start of your Japanese Course in London we will send you a profile on your trainer, followed by a Course Plan and relevant course materials. We will then also equip you with a Progress Report after every 40 hours of completed training.

Before the start of your course we will comprehensively assess your level of experience and discuss with you in detail your desired aims and goals.

Whatever your objectives, a Japanese Course in London which has been tailored to your needs is sure to meet your goals.

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 London

London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom. London has the biggest population within Europe with over 8.6 million residents. However, this is not the largest population London has seen, with the current population equivalent to the population 76 years ago. To cope with the extreme population of London, there are approximately 10000 miles of sewage pipes underneath London.

London has been a major settlement for two millennia. Founded by the Romans, who called it Londinium, London retains its square-mile mediaeval boundaries where you will find today’s financial and business hub of London. London is a leading global city, with its strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence as a city. London is the world’s largest financial centre alongside New York and has the largest city GDP in Europe.

London is home to 43 universities which forms the largest concentration of higher education institutions in Europe. In 2012, London became the first city to host the Summer Olympic Games three times. London is also leading the way in transport and is home to London Heathrow airport which sees the largest amount of international passengers pass through it compared to any other airport in the world, and is also home to the London Underground which has annual passenger numbers of over 1.25 billion.

Assess Your Japanese Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Japanese language trainer in London 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 Japanese 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.
