Working with Japanese

We have launched a monthly themed newsletter to guide subscribers through our online content such as articles, videos and other resources. Premium paid susbcribers can also access our online e-learning.

This fascinating article(JPNS) explains that the younger generation in Japan use the more formal "-san" with each other at work because they no longer see their companies as family.

Japan Intercultural Consulting is pleased to announce that we now offer e-learning, something that many of our clients have requested.
