"You know you are in Japan when your toilet has 16 buttons and your bathroom talks to you!" These are common phrases you hear from people traveling to Japan for the first time. Phrases like these also describe Japan's uniqueness and modernity. But this country has a very rich culture filled with traditions and etiquette that you, as a visitor, should be aware of. Do you know how to bow properly? Do you know how to exchange business cards without offending someone? Or are you aware of the protocol that needs to be followed in a business meeting or when dining out? Questions like these and others will be looked at and discussed in this lesson on Japanese Business Etiquette. A lesson to help you prepare for your travels to Japan or for meeting Japanese clients in your country. 

Cross-Culture Cafe lessons are targeted at intermediate to more advanced EFL/ESL Business English learners and speakers of the English language. Lessons include vocabulary, audio (text is in the hand-out to be read), reading comprehension, videos, discussion questions, role-plays and homework, thus providing a richer learning experience and relating to real-life situations. This lesson contains 24 slides/pages and is good for 2 hours of training (depending on the size of class).

All zip-folders contain 3 files: the PPT lesson and PDFs (with and without the answer key) and come with clear step-by-step teaching notes and are standalone – you will not need to prepare extra materials in order to complete the lesson. However, you can edit the PPTs on your computer to adjust to your needs.
