Advanced Business English: Yuki from Japan

Students choose to study at Embassy not only to learn English in the classroom, but also to gain invaluable language skills in real-world settings. Many of our international students are interested in gaining confidence and fluency in English to advance their careers to the next level. Our Advanced Business English course at Embassy San Francisco combines in-class instruction with guest speakers and visits to local companies to give students a truly unique experience. In addition, students can also book an English in Action program in the USA, a 4 or 8 week experience where students perfect their language skills with an unpaid placement in a US business, community or educational organisation.

This week we caught up with ABE – EIA student Yuki Sumida from Japan to learn more about her experience.

Tell us about yourself!

I am from Japan. I quit a company two years ago and started working as a freelance MC in Japan.

I used to be a student of Embassy English in 2010 and since then I had been wishing to come back here to study more, especially Business English.

I am very glad to be a student of Embassy again and strongly believe that I am improving my English skills more by attending the Advanced Business English class.

What topics are your favorite and why?

Career building, mission and vision statements, business communication and teamwork were all very interesting topics for me since I have been considering about my career.

There are students of various ages in the class so I am able to know different opinions of various generations. The trend of career building in Japan is changing now and discussing this topic with international students and the teacher is helpful for me to foresee how it would be in the future.
