Business Japanese Language Workshop: From Honorific Expressions to Business Writing


『ビジネス日本語ワークショップ:敬意表現からビジネス・ライティングまで』を2014年9月26日にJapan Societyで開催します。

This workshop enables advanced Japanese learners to master useful expressions for business writing, which is imperative for formal communications in various business situations. To begin with, writing up such things as requirements on business activities, new plans, and ideas in a document form not only prevents us from overlooking critical issues, but it also helps us organize our thoughts in succinct and straightforward ways. Business letters furthermore help us reduce the risk of miscommunications with others. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to most of the areas associated with business writing. The workshop also provides intensive training in reading and writing business documents in Japanese.

Dr. Minami teaches business Japanese courses at SFSU through an academic year.  He is happy to share his expertise with JSNC language students and members.  Followed by last year’s “Business Japnaese Language Workshop”, Japanese business writing is the main focus this year in addition to honorific expressions.

Space is limited and registration is available on a first come first served basis.  Please register early to ensure your spot in the workshop. This session is recommended for anyone who retains Japanese skill level of JLPT N3 or above.
