    Business English Lessons - Tokyo>Meguro>Ebisu>Nakamegruo
    It is a pleasure to meet you, my name is Robert Sensei and I have been teaching English for 4+ years in Japan. This lesson is for those who live in Tokyo or working around Meguro/Ebisu area and want to improve their English skills. This specific lesson is focused on quickly preparing you for the coming international trade show. We will focus on role play and also creating a script to answer commonly asked questions at these types of events. Prior to departure this course will have you ready and prepared for creating the leads you need to close new business and make industry connections. This is only a short course, but the lessons are designed to feel you with confidence and make the trade show travel experience more rewarding for you and your career. In addition, my teaching style is based on your needs, requests and learning style. If for example, you have to prepare an English presentation or have an important email to write, then allow me to provide you with some professional guidelines. Like many things in life, the fit of the human element between student and teacher is of the utmost importance. Like hand to glove, it needs to fit. For the student to get the best results from the lesson time. Therefore I suggest a trial lesson to cut to the chase and see if my service is best for you.

    English
    All of us were studying English at schools and universities. However, in some period of time we find out that we forgot almost everything we knew before. Someone can read and write yet, but afraid of speaking. Someone feel comfortable with books and TV, but get lost when he meet foreigners. Someone need English for Business. Someone doesn't understand these "amazing" English Tenses. Of course, there are people who have never learnt English and want to start from the very beginning. I can show you, that English language is not an invincible monster, and learning of the second foreing language is extremly interesting and useful process. During the lessons we will use work materials, listen audio, read books and periodicals, watch movies and speak, speak, speak...
