      JSL x ANZCCJ Webinar Series: Easy Japanese for Everyday Life, Culture and Business - Session 4: Welcoming guests to your business place and visiting a business yourself

      ANZCCJ and Bronze Members JSL Nippon Academy have collaborated on a regular series of language-learning webinars aimed at those studying Japanese.

      These webinars will focus on “easy Japanese” that can be used in everyday life, cultural and business settings, featuring JSL’s head teacher Ms. Miyazato, who has extensive experience teaching students ranging from absolute beginners to advanced learners.

      While understanding that the language is important, it is also very important to understand Japanese culture and business culture as well.

      In Part Four of this series, we will learn the rules, manners and useful phrases you should know when welcoming guests to your business place, or visiting a business yourself. JSL will also share additional knowledge that you can use to your advantage, such as the correct order in which people should stand in an elevator and sit around the meeting table. A summary of this webinar will be available for download after the session.

      If you are often required to conduct business with Japanese people, this webinar will be for you!
