Since Shinjuku Japanese Language Institute began offering business Japanese 20 years ago, it has become a popular course selection for advanced level students. In order to take this class, students must have a Japanese language ability equivalent to the JLPT N2. The course utilizes “New Businessman Story,” an original textbook created by SNG instructors. Through 50 different business situation role-plays, all using keigo (polite speech), students will learn Japanese business language, manners, and writing styles. Students will study using a variety of sources concerning business and economics. Every term, students participate in a “new product design meeting” team project, where groups compete to create the best new design.
