NihongoBashi Introduces Jobskills English Language Training & Soft Skills Development Program In India

Singapore, Singapore Singapore (PressExposure) October 01, 2007 -- Bangalore, September 08, 2007: Linguistic services company Nihongo Bashi ( is expanding its portfolio of career-oriented education and training programs with the introduction of JobSkills©, English language training and soft skills development program in India.

The company is making its entry into this segment to help fulfill the huge demand for candidates with good English communication and soft skills to take on global opportunities, both from within India & overseas. In fact, the ITES industry has identified English skills amongst the workforce as a key requirement to continue the outsourcing/offshoring of jobs to India.

JobSkills© is a part-time Certificate program with intensive, instructor-led in-classroom training. Aptly titled JobSkills©, a leading management institute in Bangalore has already introduced this program to more than 120 students with a view to enhance job prospects in their final year. The program is based on the curriculum prescribed for various Cambridge ESOL examinations, the world's leading range of certificates for learners of English. It will be open to anyone with a minimum Bachelor's degree in any discipline.

The focus of the JobSkills© program is on conversational English, mainly in a business context; the objective is to equip students with the confidence to converse in good English.

"The importance of good communication skills, particularly in English, cannot be overstated, particularly in today's business environment as more global assignments get done out of India and more Indians travel overseas on work/ business," says Karthik Tirupathi, President of Nihongo Bashi.

"With JobSkills©, our aim is to equip students with the requisite career-oriented skills that will complement vocational skills they acquire within our mainstream education system. With the same rigor, commitment and professionalism that have made our Japanese education programs such a huge success in India, we expect to pave the way for rewarding global careers with the JobSkills© program."

The JobSkills© program will be available through Nihongo Bashi's offices in Bangalore, Chennai, NOIDA, Kolkata, Pune and Coimbatore.
