Why learn Japanese Part 1
  • Have you decided to add skill on your CV? Did you
    know that linguists are in great demand in the
    job market? Or is learning a language your new
    hobby? If any of these answers are affirmative,
    then this series is for you.
  • This two-part blog will explain why it is
    beneficial to learn Japanese language to
    kickstart your career today. Part 1 will be
    dedicated to the overall benefits of Japanese
    language, and Part 2 will focus on career
    prospects of the language. 

  • The Japanese word for Japan is Nihon or Nippon
    (??). It is made up of two Kanjis (Chinese
    characters) Ni (?), which means Sun and Hon
    (?), which means Origin. So the literal meaning
    of the word would be "Origin of the Sun", which
    corresponds to the fact that the Sun rises
    foremost in Japan. 
  • It is an island country situated on the North
    West Pacific ocean. Russia, China and South Korea
    are the major neighbours. Japan has four distinct
    seasons, but climatic conditions can differ a
    little depending on the area. 
  • For instance, Hokkaido, the northernmost part of
    Japan, experiences warm summers and freezing
    winters with heavy snowfall. Whereas, Tokyo
    experiences hot and humid summers and chilling
    winters. However, Sakura blooms during spring are
    common to all.

  • Japan was the first developed country from Asia.
    It is the only Asian country in G7, the group of
    most developed nations. The miraculous growth of
    the war-torn country stunned the world and showed
    other developing nations the path to success. 
  • Today, Japan is the third-largest economy. 53
    Japanese multinational corporations have featured
    in the Fortune 500 list. Japan is also
    the 4th largest FDI investor. A large FDI
    presence means that Japanese companies have a
    significant presence in countries
    like India, Brazil and ASEAN nations, and other
    developed countries like the United States. 

  • Apart from MNCs, Japan is very well known for its
    Anime, Manga, J-pop and movies. 'Attack on
    Titan', 'Pasona' and 'Dragon Ball Z' are widely
    popular Animes. Doraemon and Shinchan must have
    been a part of everyone's childhood!
  • The Japanese Shinto shrines inside the forests,
    often on the top of a mountain gorgeous volcano
    mountains, rivers and lakes and other traditional
    places have always attracted people worldwide. On
    the other hand, bustling roads of Tokyo and
    lively Osaka streets form a beautiful fusion of
    oriental and western cultural elements. 

  • Japanese is Japan's official language, but a
    small native population can also be found in
    nations like the USA, Brazil, China, and South
    Korea. Most native Japanese people cannot speak a
    second language, although many of the young
    population have started learning English. 
  • Japanese language allows the following benefits
    to the learners

Personality Development
  • Learning Japanese language aids in developing
    cognitive skills and higher thinking skills. So,
    it can be helpful to understand other subjects
    that require analytical skills like science.
    Additionally, you will be the master of one of
    the most challenging languages, which will
    enhance your status and showcase your ability to
    take on difficult challenges!

Better Career Prospects
  • As is mentioned above, Japan has a significant
    worldwide presence, but surprisingly Japanese
    language is not taught as extensively as
    other European languages like French or German.
    You will find less competition in every
    field IT, Hospitality, Research, Banking,
    Education, Health and what not!

Culture Appreciation
  • As you learn Japanese, a whole new world of
    culture and traditions will open up. Japanese are
    modern people with strict traditional roots. To
    understand Japanese society and their way of
    thinking, it is better to learn Japanese. You can
    compare Japanese traditions with your own, to
    understand the merits of both and adopt them. In
    short, you get the best of both worlds!

Travel to Japan
  • Japan is a beautiful country with marvellous
    natural sites like Mount Fuji and karaoke,
    historical places like Kyoto, Nara and more.
    Learning the language can pave the way to
    understand Japanese history and literature. Last
    but not least, you can enjoy Anime and Manga in
    its original form. All of this can help you to
    enjoy your stay while following all the social
    norms fully!

Gateway Language
  • It is the perfect passport to many Asian
    languages like Chinese and Korean. A lot
    of Korean and Japanese words are similar, along
    with grammatical similarities. If you have learnt
    Japanese, it will be easier to understand Chinese
    writings due to resembling writing
    systems (Kanjis).
