There is an increasing number of international people travelling to Japan with a desire to learn Japanese that they can use to support their study, work, travel and life. With few courses available that provide the needed practical training within a short amount of time, DEOW is excited to present the Practical Japanese Conversation Program.
This intensive training program, curated by DEOW, provides students with the key phrases and vocabulary that can be used in daily life in Japan. The course takes on a coaching-style approach that emphasizes effective communication through rehearsal in order to develop confidence and muscle memory for when you are in real situations where you want to express yourself to Japanese people and understand them as well.
Although learning grammar and reading are important in the long-term studying of any language, many students undergo years of learning in classroom settings without being able to speak effectively. This comes at a loss, for verbal communication allows you to connect with the local people and explore more of the culture. In the case of Japan, our goal in this course is to help you communicate better, so that you are all the more enabled to explore everything that Japan has to offer.
There is an expression in the English language that is familiar to many people and commonly used in reference to languages: If you don’t use it, you lose it. It follows then, that if what students learn is useful, then they will be able to use it, and if they can use it, they will remember it. On the contrary, if students leave the classroom unable to concretely state what they have learned, then it is unlikely that they will be able to use it, and thus it will be likely be forgotten and need to be trained again. Training language which is practical is therefore more efficient.
With this understanding and philosophy, DEOW is proud to present the Practical Japanese Conversation Program, which addresses the growing need for efficient and effective training so that students can spend less time studying and more time communicating and connecting with people in their everyday life.

It is a hotspot for fashion, entertainment and dining, where people can find Japan’s major department stores, large shopping malls, restaurants and entertainment centres. Shibuya is also the home of the iconic statue of Hachiko, one of the most popular meet-up points for friends, and the world famous Shibuya Crossing where every change of the lights signals one of the largest crossings of people in Japan if not the world, sending people in all directions to their desired destinations in the city.
