1:1 and Group Japanese Courses in Stoke

Our Japanese courses are usually offered by our clients as 1:1 training for their employees. Group sessions, however, are also available and can be excellent value for money. Planning is required so that participants all meet at the same time each week, and we recommend that numbers are kept to 6 or less. 1:1 Japanese lessons at Stoke mean that you will have your individual needs, weaknesses and strengths catered for, so that your progress is quicker.

Japanese Course Management

A multi-lingual Account Manager with extensive experience is responsible for each SIMON & SIMON Japanese language course. A profile on your trainer, Course Plan and course materials will be sent to you when you start your Japanese course. After every 40 hours of training you will receive a Progress Report. We will also send you Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter, which contains a wonderful prize draw and valuable language learning resource weblinks.

Japanese Course Locations & Schedules

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.

Stoke Japanese Course Schedules

The Japanese language courses in Stoke that we run go on through the year. Each week, most of our students will attend at least one of our 90-minute lessons, but many will do more. We can also arrange Weekend Courses for you. Japanese courses run from Monday to Friday, any time from 8am to 6pm. Intensive Japanese language courses can be arranged in residential centres abroad or in the UK, or on clients’ premises for 30 hours per week, 6 hours a day Monday to Friday.

Japanese Course Content

Before you start your Japanese language course we will assess your level of Japanese and speak to you about your aims so that your Japanese language course can be customised for you. You may have never been exposed to Japanese before and wish to develop basic survival skills, or you may have some experience and wish to be able to speak more fluently in Japanese when discussing business. You may want to further your ability to use Japanese in negotiations and meetings or better your comprehension and pronunciation abilities. Whatever goals you may have, our experienced Japanese language trainers will tailor your Japanese course so that your goals can be quickly met.

Japanese Language Examination Courses

We are happy to help in your preparation for any Japanese examinations. Our students have a 95% pass rate and we think that their success shows the value of our policy of working with above-average experienced Japanese teachers in Stoke. Issuing of results certificates, registration for Japanese examinations and administration of such exams is also provided by SIMON & SIMON.

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 Stoke

Stoke means “hamlet”, from the Anglo-Saxon. It formed part of the ancient Forest of Mondrum. Stoke is not mentioned by name in the Domesday survey; the name was first recorded in 1260. Barbridge is mentioned in John Leland’s Itinerary from a visit of 1536. The civil parish was originally a township in the ancient parish of Acton in the Nantwich Hundred; it was served by St Mary’s Church, Acton. The manor was given by Randal de Praers to his son, who assumed the name Stoke, and later passed to the Beeston and Aston families. By 1622, it was held by the Minshull family of Stoke Hall. The manor was held by the Wilbraham family from 1753 to 1781, and was then sold to the Craven family. During the Civil War, Stoke was occupied by royalist forces in December 1643, together with much of the surrounding area. In the 17th–19th centuries, the area appears to have had a substantial Quaker population; a graveyard at Stoke Grange Farm was given to the movement in 1657 and remained in use until the mid-19th century. During World War II, Stoke Manor provided accommodation for land girls.

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 Stoke 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.
