This book aims to help learners of Japanese develop business-oriented conversation skills, acquire business terminology and protocols, refine discourse styles and increase sensitivity to corporate culture in Japan. It introduces a series of systematically sequenced business conversations and provides solid grammatical and cultural explanations behind each interaction. Conversational themes have been chosen to follow a natural course of events that a U.S. college graduate would experience when hired by a Japanese corporation. Conversations in each lesson are made as natural and authentic as possible. Explanations are presented in a user-friendly manner with abundant illustrations. Extensive exercises are provided in each chapter to help learners utilize their knowledge in structured as well as in communicative contexts. Listening comprehension and reading and writing exercises are also provided.
