I learned Japanese Business Culture and it was very insightful and Yamamoto sensei teaches so well. I have learned from a few institutions in Japan but I like Arai Academy’s approach and the way you all are guiding. I am very happy to join the classes. Thank you so much for all kind assistance and support always.'  - G.T (India)

上司に使てはいけない言葉等、授業の内容が一番身に着けたかった内容でした。 そして、今迄AraiAcademyのレッスンを受けて、社内の日本人とのコミュニケーションに、前よりもっと自信を持てるようになったと感じました。 実は、この前、山本先生から教えていただきました表現を、ぴったりの場面があり、すぐ思いつき使ったときに、「すごいね、良い表現」と褒められました。(その時「使えた!! ありがとうございます山本先生!」と思いました。(笑) F.A (インドネシア) 03/08/2022
