NISSAN has brought out a Japanese language textbook designed for foreigners. Unlike conventional textbooks, Business Japanese takes a practical approach — stressing the kind of basic Japanese that is commonly used in business circles and by technicians.
Nissan maintains trading ties with over 150 countries and has production facilities in 22 of these, so learning of the instruction requirements of technical personnel. Nissan hopes that instructors will find this textbook useful in their language courses.
Business Japanese is published by Bonjin and is available at E21.60 from Overseas Courier Service (London) OCS House, 98/104 Baylis Road, Waterloo, London SE1 7AT.
