Japanese is fast growing as an international language. Also Japan is the second largest consumer of IT services. Learning Japanese is crucial for any kind of business interactions with Japan. India is aiming to be a leading IT services provider in the world. For India to tap the Japanese market we need people with a working knowledge of the Japanese language.
The Japanese course offered by the Institute takes the learner from the very scratch and gradually increases the knowledge of the basic vocabulary, script etc. The textbooks and approach of teaching adopted are such that the students can appear for the widely recognised Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) conducted annually by the Japan Foundation and Association of International Education, Japan.
If you are looking to work in Japan, It would make things work more smoothly if you learned the language rather than trying to find American-owned businesses or hoping like heck that your co-workers will understand you. You will find that learning at least one other language could greatly increase your job prospects.
"Knowing Japanese will set you apart from the crowd. You’re learning how to navigate and fish in less traveled waters."
Japan is one of the best study-abroad destinations for students who are venturing abroad. It is one of the safest countries in the world, with its low crime rate, secure borders, and renowned transportation system.
