  common problems  regarding Japanese

 language training

The points are taken from a speech given by President Koike at the ASEAN-Japan Centre.


※For materials presented at the time, click here.

 Non-Japanese do not  understand the necessity  of developing Japanese  ability.

When students do not grasp the importance of why they need Japanese, their results are cut in half even if they take Japanese language training.

Let us be clear:

Achievement = Student Motivation x Content Learned x Time Spent Learning

 Students are not notified  in advance that there will  be Japanese language  training.

Although Japanese people may feel gratitude that their company has paid for training, not all non-Japanese feel grateful. In fact, many feel that it takes up time outside their contractual obligation.

 Corporate managers do  not fully understand on-  site needs.

It’s hard to put together the best training program if managers do not understand how important Japanese ability is in the workplace. This problem can easily arise when there is poor communication between the hiring and training team and the location an employee is assigned. Such cases are common particularly when the hiring and training work is handled by another company and details are left up to the location of assignment.

 There is no index for  objectively measuring  Japanese ability.

There are many cases where corporations complain that they hired someone that passed the JLPT N1, but they can’t converse.

There is not enough understanding and cooperation at the location of assignment.

If classes are held during business hours, results of learning are cut in half if students cannot focus on the training.

 Coordination between  hiring managers and  training managers is  poor.

Sometimes training before and after hiring is inconsistent in cases where the hiring team handles pre-hiring training and the training team handles post-hiring training.

 Japanese can hardly  tell whether it is a  good Japanese  training or not.

It is important to start your own Japanese training programs to fit your company’s needs. Moreover, if you have non-Japanese employees, you can also entrust them with the leadership of creating Japanese training programs.
