QUICK USA, Inc., an employment agency in New York that helps experienced workers and accomplished students find jobs at Japanese companies in America, is holding a workshop on business communication in Japanese. Focusing on communication skills needed in Japanese business and corporate environments as well as daily conversation, students will learn useful and practical expressions, phrases, and vocabulary. This class will also emphasize intercultural communication and the importance of Japanese business cultural etiquette.

The instructor is Shiyo Kaku, a native Japanese teacher who holds an MA in Japanese Pedagogy from Columbia University. She has taught Japanese at various institutions including the University of Pennsylvania, The New School, CUNY The City College of New York, and Japan Society.

The class will be taught in a mixture of Japanese and English and will cover these topics:

  • The concept of uchi (in-group) vs. soto (out-group) in Japanese business contexts
  • Self-introduction/basic greetings using keigo (practical usage of polite, honorific, and humble form)
  • Gift giving and receiving in Japanese business contexts
  • Basic Katakana phrases often used in Japanese business contexts

This is an intermediate level class, so participants are required to be able to read hiragana and katakana and have at least intermediate-level speaking and listening skills in Japanese.

This workshop is perfect for

  • People who are working for or are interested in Japanese companies.
  • People who are seeking Japanese clients.
  • People who are planning to work in Japan.
  • Students learning Japanese who want extra practice.
