Professional Training

Testimonial from a current student

I studied Japanese at university and was a bit rusty when I started with Noriyuki 2 years ago. He assessed my level at the first lesson and started me just where I left off.

From the moment I started taking classes from Noriyuki, I knew I'd found the right Japanese teacher. Teaching Japanese is Noriyuki's full-time profession, not a side job, and it shows. His approach is the perfect combination of being structured yet flexible - structured because he's very organized and thinks through what each lesson should focus on, but flexible because he tailors the lesson to each student's individual needs. He achieves this because he has a wealth of teaching materials, whether it's a mid-level textbook, a listening CD, or anything else. (I think he knows every book that's ever been written about learning Japanese!) Need practice with conversation? Noriyuki knows the right book and listening materials to use. Need help with a particular grammar pattern? Noriyuki can pull out plenty of examples and review them with you. On top of that, he's in tune with all of the Japanese cultural events in London (including a bit of sake tasting), which only makes the lessons more fun.

If you're looking to learn, improve or maintain your Japanese, you simply won't find a better teacher than Noriyuki.

In Company /Corporate Japanese Language Training

I have created formal courses for in-company training where a group of employees need to learn Japanese for professional reasons. I would typically create a custom course to your specific needs. A typical basic course would require a commitment of some 30 hours from students and teaching would take place over a period of 3 - 4 months.

Case Study A

A London based company was taken over by a Japanese based multi-national and a course was devised for the management in basic business Japanese - language and customs to ensure good communications between the two.

Case Study B

A London based language school was experiencing a significant increase in the number of Japanese students being admitted. The front-office staff required knowledge of basic Japanese to help in communication, so a custom course was designed and taught to their requirements.
