Conscious Communications 101:

Basic Training

 

Language fluency is based on the four pillars of vocabulary acquisition, grammar knowledge, pronunciation ability and experience with these three. The trend in language learning in Japan is always listening-focused, with busy learners believing they can simply input language through their ears (i.e. Speed Learning) and develop the ability to reproduce that language through their mouths. And they spend tons of cash in that effort.

The truth is that without knowledge of the vocabulary, syntax and sound structure of the content, they will never be able to reproduce it “to effect”, no matter how many hundreds of hours it is listened to.  The answer to fluency is always study and experience. But where so many people run into obstacles is, 1) lack of knowledge of what it really takes to become fluent in a language, 2) the knowledge that it is not really difficult at all, with the right tools, to master a language, 3) “苦手意識” an irrational belief, since absorbing the erroneous education of childhood, that one is unable to acquire the language due to deficiencies in personal ability, 4) inadequate devotion to the experiential (i.e. 1-hour a week at the local 英会話学校), 5) No personal vision, plan, map to successful acquisition of the language.

 PRONUNCIATION (3-Hour Seminar for 50 – 500 people)  

  1. The alphabet: the difference between the name of the letter and its sound. (Eg. ‘A’ has 3 sounds.)
  2. Vowels and consonants: A major difference between English and Japanese – English letters are single sounds. Japanese letters are primarily combination sounds. This makes two problems.
  3. Final Consonant Pronunciation
  4. Why final Consonants are so integral to language (Introduce Grammar & Vocabulary: i.e. suffixes)
  5. Syllable Count and the katakana dilemma.
  6. Foreign sounds and the bath/bus dilemma.
  7. Mouth Structure: Only 5 active parts: Mindfulness & Body Consciousness
  8. Truth: Only 26 letters = 44 Sounds = 357 words reveal every letter combination (most already known to the Japanese!) 8 authentically foreign sounds which can be mastered with attention.
  9. Right or Light? ら、り、る does not equal Ra, Ri, Ru! How to use the tongue.
  10. Master Pronunciation to master listening. “R” is one-third of the battle!

Etc. And more!

The above knowledge content in combination with a routine of training during the seminar and a solid homework assignment will give the participant a dynamic experience, a valuable take-away, and a pathway to progress.

Vocabulary (3-Hour Seminar for 50 – 500 people)     

  1. What do you really want to say? (Intention & Consciousness Exploration)
  2. The power of the word to create reality – Precision
  3. Key differences between Japanese & English: Hierarchies
  4. English is polite, too! Please, thank-you, sir, madam.
  5. Prefixes & Suffixes (The essential 70 word-forms needed for fluency)
  6. The 6-step Vocabulary Mastery Process: Don’t memorize it, learn it!

ETC. And more.

The above knowledge content in combination with a routine of training during the seminar and a solid homework assignment will give the participant a dynamic experience, a valuable take-away, and a pathway to progress.

Grammar (3-Hour Seminar for 50 people max.)   

*More people possible with additional instructors. Instructors will require intensive training.

  1. Subject-Verb-Object Relationship
  2. Some basic differences between English & Japanese: Articles, Plural S
  3. Verb Conjugation: Master 6 basics before anything else (Past & Present State of Being, past & Present Action, Future (Will & Going to are the same), Present Continuous, “There is/are there any/some countable/uncountable objects with prepositions someplace/sometime.
  4. High-Impact Dynamic Training drills using maximum voice and steady eye-contact.

*I must move quickly among many people, hence the limit to 50 people.

The above knowledge/training content and a homework assignment based on mindful self-training will give the participant a dynamic experience, a valuable take-away, and a pathway to progress.

1-Day Seminar (Incl. 1-3 Above) (Max 50 people)   

2-Day Seminar (Incl. 1-3 Above) (Max 50-100 people)   

Intensive Vision/Goal setting

Future mapping

Q/A

Culture Comparisons

Group-work, Discussion, Presentation

Social Dilemma Team-building Game

1 or 2-Day Seminar for Service Industry (Max 50-100 people)   

Currently there are few seminars catering explicitly to the service industry. And there are very, very few textbooks. But there is a huge market. The above studies, particularly Pronunciation, are of considerable importance. Furthermore, there are considerable similarities between Japaneseおもてなし and western hospitality. Training incorporating all of the above mentioned content, plus comparison and discussion of Japanese traditional おもてなし, manner and form, as well as attention to and discussion concerning 日本の心 itself, supported by drilling various role-plays including front, concierge and dining services, focusing on technique, posture and gesture, voice style, volume and tone, and language content creates a dynamic seminar experience with invaluable takeaway merit and a path for moving forward.
