    Le Cordon Bleu Japan offers cuisine, pastry and bakery programs by master chefs whose native languages are French, English or Japanese. Our students are from various parts of the world, who communicate using a variety of other languages including English or Chinese. The role of our interpreters is to transmit the teaching of our master chefs to the students with accuracy and professionalism, whilst also imparting the passion of the culinary arts to the students.

    Apart from conventional class interpretation, our interpreters are also expected to assist our students in communicating with the chefs when they need to ask questions to deepen their understanding of class materials. There may also be instances of written translation tasks.

    Our interpreters are expected to be good communicators, team players, and possess a strong desire to learn, especially about French gastronomy!
