Intercultural & English Learning – 

Freshman Training

Build motivation for English speaking global career

The problem is new hires are not all self-motivated for English learning or embracing global career chances

Join and get excitement and understanding about building skills for a global career including English and intercultural communication skills

Your program was very fun and interesting for me, and makes me study harder (hopefully…). 

I will be a “global leader”, in the not so far future. 

New Hire, Marketing Car Manufacturer

Your seminar was very useful and interesting especially the difference meeting, presentation, between Japan and foreign company.

Administration Coordinator, Technology Company

Thank you for an interesting lecture. I was very encouraged by the words you said, especially “don’t be afraid of making mistakes using English”. I lived overseas, but that was 10 years ago, so to be honest, I’m not confident using English.
