Tokyo Infographic - the largest metro area, population-wise, in the world

Tokyo is the capital of Japan, as well as the country’s most populous metro area. On top of that, Tokyo is actually the largest metro area population-wise in the world. About 8.5 million people live in the city proper, while over 37 million call the greater Tokyo area home.

The city is also one of the top global business hubs. Japan has the third-largest economy in the world, after the U.S. and China. The country’s top export partners are China, the U.S., South Korea and Thailand, while the top import partners are China, the U.S, Australia, the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Companies with headquarters in the Tokyo area include such famous global brands as Honda, Hitachi, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Canon and Sony. With all this activity, it’s no wonder that Japanese is consistently recommended as one of the best languages to learn for business.

While Tokyo is an important international city, Tokyo is not exactly a hub for immigration, which is also true of Japan as a whole. About 2% of the population is foreign-born, compared with 13.7% in the U.S. However, the long-term trends around immigration in Japan seem to be shifting. Since the country’s population is both shrinking and aging, there’s a growing need for foreign-born workers. When you couple projected increases in immigration with Japan’s continued prominence in the global economy, there’s a great need for corporate language training. Fluency Corp fills that need with customized and practical language classes.

Onsite English Language Training in Tokyo

Companies that do business in both the U.S. and Japan often discover that there’s a great need for language training in their workforce. Because there are few similarities between Japanese and English, speakers of one language often have a hard time learning the other. Few people in Japan are fluent in English, and vice versa.

Fluency Corp offers onsite and online language training in Tokyo for both English and Japanese that serves a range of workforce needs. We can help you smooth virtual collaboration between U.S. and Japanese employees, prepare Japanese employees for U.S. assignments, and help U.S. expats feel at home in Tokyo and throughout Japan. For your convenience, online language instruction is also available.

Whether they’re learning in-person or online, your employees will work live with a language coach instead of simply practicing on an app. This gives them invaluable conversational practice in their new language.

Fluency Corp language lessons are also highly cost-efficient because they’re tailored to the specific needs of your employees. Instructors customize classes to quickly get your employees up to speed on the specific words and phrases they need for their jobs. Through Fluency Corp language training, employees become more comfortable, confident and productive using their second language for business. They collaborate more smoothly, avoid miscommunications and contribute to their full potential. If you’d like to learn more about language training in Tokyo, contact us now.
