  • The content of our language training is always tailored to the precise needs of each learner. This means we do not follow a “one-size-fits-all” approach, but rather deliver bespoke content based on the requirements of each delegate. We evaluate these requirements through a thorough pre-course needs analysis.
  • The content will focus on your professional and everyday activities, job function, lifestyle and skill expertise. For spouses and families, the emphasis is on instantly applicable language skills to enable immediate practical day-to-day communication and an effective social interface.
  • Our courses employ the ELAM (Empirical Language Acquisition Model) involving a systematic acquisition of language, in which you are immediately “trained” to use in a verbal, practical and functional way. This method aims to produce confident oral and aural fluency, and essentially through constant usage, is designed to facilitate long term memory retention in adult learners.

One of our experienced native business language trainers from our global network of over 2,500 trainers will be assigned to your course after we have conducted your needs analysis.  All of our professional trainers have a minimum of 3 years’ teaching experience with the required qualifications and background checks and are provided training in Directors languages’ unique ELAM language acquisition model.

We assess your Japanese level using the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) as seen below.
