Business Japanese (JAPN 390)

Masahiko Minami teaches "Business Japanese" (JAPN 390) again in Spring 2012. "Business Japanese" is designed for those who have completed some upper-division Japanese courses. The course enables those students to master conversational expressions that are useful in business environments. The course specifically provides intensive training in business Japanese, focusing on the forms of communication frequently encountered in the business world. The goals of the course include (1) learning expressions and vocabularies that are essential to business, (2) acquiring verbal and nonverbal communication strategies for better interaction with Japanese business associates, (3) learning how to deal with Japanese business people both in formal and informal settings, and (4) reading business-related articles.
