Japanese Language and Media Institute unveils new unique Japanese course


Japanese Language and Media Institute (JLMI), which is under the umbrella of one of the leading schools in Tokyo for training professional visual media translators, has announced a brand-new course where students can learn practical Japanese needed for doing business in Japan through media. It is slated to run from Monday, March 26, to Friday, March 30.

A Fun, Unique Curriculum

In this five-day course, students will learn all about the unique business manners and customs of Japan, “high-context” Japanese culture, the Japanese media industry and more. The course takes an innovative approach of using popular Japanese entertainment content such as video games and anime to teach practical Japanese and important aspects of Japanese culture.

Professional Teachers with a Wealth of Experience

This course will be taught directly by business professionals, professional media translators, and experienced directors who have a wealth of experience on the front lines of the media industry.

Career Support for Students Who Complete the Course

Those who finish the course will be eligible to register with JVTA’s human resources network – JLMI provides those who are registered with information on media-related jobs and career events. JLMI also plans to offer both intermediate and advanced courses beginning sometime in the summer of 2018. In addition to language courses, students will also be able to develop their communication skills through internship opportunities and participating in company matching events.

Learning Japanese in English sounds just as ineffective as learning English in Japanese has proved to be.

Learning Japanese in English sounds just as ineffective as learning English in Japanese has proved to be.

I initially learned Japanese in English, and it was very effective for me. Getting explanations of difficult concepts in a language I could understand was very helpful.

I work in an environment where very smart people get paid private Japanese lessons (3 years courses). In 10 years not ONE has learned to speak the language..

I cannot conceive of a few days course’s curriculum being any better than a collection of carefully curated youtube videos ...

Seems a bit dubious - just how does a 5 day course benefit you, part from perhaps if you are bored and on a week long Tourist visit here ?
