How to Learn English for Global Success
Build motivation of new English learners
The problem is that mid-level speakers avoid English use and study, because they don’t appreciate the intercultural difference…
Enjoy mid-level business English communication tasks and get motivated for learning.
I think that your lecture was great and fun. I thought that I had better learn English continuously to communicate with other people more smoothly. And. It’s good opportunity to enhance skill and knowledge.
The value you offer is not only vaguely business English, but you cover various topics that Japanese people typically struggle to learn. This is more hands-on and effect-oriented than typical English schools. And your class was not Japanified. That’s what I really like the most.
Thank you for a valuable and enjoyable seminar.
Differences of business style between Japanese and Western was so impressive. I’ve just started trying to get my career goal clear.
