At first, learning Japanese may seem like a daunting task, for the grammar is completely different from European languages and the writing system is ornate – two alphabets mixed with a character adapted from Chinese. But if you just relax and start with the basics, you’ll find that learning the language is not as difficult as it sounds.
Japan is a prosperous country and has the most diverse economy in Asia. The leading Japanese companies are among the largest, most efficiently run, and most well-known firms in the world. Being able to communicate with potential customers in their own language is key to winning their business. In addition, when you learn Japanese, you become not only proficient in the language but also gain an insider view of the culture. A study of Japanese can open your perspective on the values that other Asian nations share with Japan, including religious beliefs and ethics.
