Practical Japanese for Manufacturing

HOME>Practical Japanese for Manufacturing

1. Learn from “Manufacturing” in the Chukyo region

Taiichi Ohno, father of the Toyota Production System (alumnus of Nagoya Institute of Technology) Practical classes are set up to improve Japanese language ability for problem solving and presentation in Japanese by gathering information about topics in small groups. The classes are designed to cultivate the manufacturing spirit in the Chukyo region.
 (Examples of topics: Taiichi Ohno, the father of the Toyota Production System; worldwide advanced ceramics manufacturers, which began as traditional ceramics; skilled workers at small and medium-sized enterprises supporting advanced technologies; and traditional industries such as hatcho miso and Buddhist altars)

2. Strengthen Basic Skills in Business Japanese

 In the early stages of learning business Japanese, lessons focus on such fundamentals as basic conversation in offices, telephone manners in business, and standard expressions for business letters, using materials from AOTS (Association for Overseas Technical Scholarship). Students will gradually attach importance to learning Japanese by gathering information on various topics.

Japanese learning by gathering information on various topics has been incorporated into the program since the first year. In the course, students spend one and a half years learning Japanese from basic business skills to information gathering about topics.
