Rika Kinoshita (Office Worker) International Liberal Arts and Manners Course Beginner

I'm excited to further my learning and move forward to intermediate to advanced levels. I want to become a person that embodies knowledge, culture and elegance.

I learned that protocol and etiquette are not set rules that we have to follow, but rather the actions behind a thoughtful individual that strives to make other people around them feel more at ease by how they communicate their ideas and opinions. I really enjoyed learning about etiquette and it was a fun way to unravel ancient history by understanding the thought process behind certain manners. I found it even more meaningful when it connected to how I act around others. In addition to classroom lectures, I was also able to practice my table manners by taking part in social events that were often organized by the academy.

It was a much more powerful study than the beginner's class.

In my fourth year as a member of society, when I was wondering how to deal with foreigners when the company did business overseas, I was destined to meet ICPA.I spent a year learning the culture of international etiquette manners from beginner to advanced.After learning, I realized that it is very meaningful to study the culture of international etiquette manners at the ICPA International Accredited International Skills Protocol College from three perspectives.

It's been about a month since I finished taking the course, and looking back, I'm glad I was able to meet this course.

I was impressed by the fact that he led us to resolve anxieties in international communication, and that he taught us how to express ourselves more attractively, which is indispensable in the process.

Nowadays, the content of the course feels like it's starting to become a part of me, but if I hadn't learned it, I would have been the same as before, and I feel scared.

In this course, especially in individual courses, we will be close to each and every one of us, and the teacher will give us accurate learning and encourage us to gain confidence. I would like to recommend it to those who want to shine.

Mika Hatori (42-year-old housewife, self-employed)

The Finishing Touch beginner's class has been completed. From the end of May, Mr. Murata responded to the private lessons in 5 days.

He taught us manners, etiquette, and protocols in an easy-to-understand manner not only in Western history but also in Japan and the Middle East. Within 5 daysThere was also a place to practice the French restaurant at the Palace Hotel, table manners at Crown, Imperial Hotel, afternoon tea at Aqua, and moving from home base!English conversation may be necessary, but it was an opportunity to think about the Japanese mind as an international person before conversation.

Since you are certified by a British school, all the texts are in English, but I have translated the difficult parts to Professor Murata, who has experience living overseas and working in foreign-affiliated companies, so I can proceed without problems. It's done.I'm not good at history or English, but I had a very meaningful time.Thank you very much.I would like to enjoy incorporating international etiquette into my daily life, being considerate of others, and being able to spend time comfortably with each other.This wasn't a mundane manners school!

In addition, Mr. Murata ... As a lecturer and a woman, he is a wonderful person who can be trusted because he has an axis and does not shake.

Takayuki Sugimoto

Graduate of The International Gentlemen’s Liberal Arts "A new me."

I met Professor Murata found her to be a confident individual that helped and supported every step of my learning journey at the academy.

I remember feeling overwhelmed at the 3rd Anniversary Japanese and Western Butoh Supper. After listening to the stories of other participants, I knew I wanted to improve myself and gain more confidence, so I decided to take a course immediately.

I took a beginner’s class, but in that short time, I was able to master the basics such as attitude, posture, behaviour style.

I’m grateful for Professor Murata’s passion, energy and guidance.

I definitely want to learn more and take more advanced classes. I want to make use of what I’ve learned and help guide people in their daily lives so that we can all communicate with each other better.

A world of knowledge gained in a single course!

I recommend taking a course at ICPA. I took one to help develop the skills I will need to become a future leader. I learned the importance of having the right attitude and behaviours that can earn the trust of others which is the gateway of communication. I believe that Professor Murata’s teachings is the fastest way to acquire such skills.

A wonderful opportunity to nourish your heart and feel more hope for your own growth.

Learning from Professor Murata was great as she always presented personalized solutions and provided advice that I felt was achievable for me. I could really feel myself growing and becoming a more polished version of myself.

I believe that two types of people make up the world. For example, I’m actually a teacher myself and I feel that many teachers do not consider the true growth of the students and what the students are aiming for.

This pushed me to want to further my learning.

Then there’s the other type of teacher that provides guidance with a view to the future of the student and the vision he wants to be, but even if he has learned a lot, he has almost no memory of meeting such a teacher.

Professor Murata strongly felt that she was the latter teacher and coach.

I learned the rules of table manners and I was surprised at how small details can change one’s manner of eating or drinking completely.

Thank you for having me as a student and I hope that I can apply what I learned to my everyday life. I would like to continue learning and reaching out for new social opportunities.

International Liberal Arts One-Off Course

Watanabe (female office worker in her 30s)

It was interesting because it was like a class on Japanese history and world history about manners.

I learned who (samurai, officials, citizens) and why the background is deeper than I expected, and that cultural differences and points are different.I wasn't aware of the differences in etiquette, etiquette, and protocols, but I thought that the place to use them properly would be different.I wish I could have a basis for how I behave and be confident.

Originally, a lady has the meaning of leaving a house.There was also the idea that Ladies First was awkward, but the perspective that it wasn't was new and interesting.

I want to acquire a behavior that doesn't cover me when I go to work or in public.

Female office worker in her 30s International business manners

Respect the people you meet and express your heart through proper etiquette.

Today, I had a lesson focusing on business etiquette.He carefully taught me the etiquette questions I am facing now.

The teacher also has a lot of training experience, and he explained not only the behavior but also the principle.If you can teach me based on the principle, I think that it will be applicable in various scenes in the future.

I think this is the basic ability as a member of society that is needed by all occupations.As with exercise, I thought that social human power can only be improved by being aware of it.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude for giving us a valuable opportunity to learn.

Watanabe-san (female office worker in her 30s) Social circle course

I learned the order of clothes and belongings for each type of party and greetings to the participants.

Over the last few years, I've had the opportunity to host a company or attend a simple party outside the company, but I regret not having actively communicated with the guests, especially when I'm on the host side.

I think it's good to be confident if you know the rules of the order of shaking hands.

Female office worker in her 30s

I am taking a protocol etiquette lesson.

I received a lecture from the origin of manners, etc., and why are the seating order and procedures?It's easy to understand because you can think about that from the main book.

I'm glad to hear a living story about things that you don't really care about in Japan, but that look like squishy overseas (escorts, etc.), and things that are a little different in the United States and Europe.

Mr. Shimizu (male, 30s)

Since I made my debut in the social circles of Europe, I was in a hurry to learn important points in XNUMX hours before departure.

Despite the limited time, I was able to learn the minimum necessary things locally in a short time thanks to the solid curriculum.

It was a pre-practice because I practiced not only classroom lectures but also how to stand and escort.

I will practice it in Europe!

Thank you!

Mr. Murata was surprised to know not only his knowledge of English but also the difference in intonation and culture due to different countries! !!

Professor Murata taught me English based on the characteristics of Japanese people, and now I can make use of it in my work. Also, every week, I get inspired every day by talking about topics such as internationalization.

Taking a general English course

I was a brilliant English student in junior high and high school, and in college entrance exams.English is top class even in high school when I was in high school.Even the business Eiken that was once conducted by Eiken is grade A.

I also took the TOEIC, but it was over 940 points.

But I can't speak English fluently.

In my life, I decided to take this English lesson because I thought it was the total settlement of English.

One and a half hours of lessons each week have passed a month.During the lesson, I spoke a little in English at the beginning, and most of it was in Japanese, but recently most of it has become English.

I haven't come up with fluent English yet, but I would like to continue to train my mouth muscles for English by speaking English.
