Some great reasons to choose Japanese as your language: more than 130 million people speak it, making it the 9th most widely spoken language in the world. On top of that, Japan is an economical super-power: Japanese economy is the third-largest in the world (nominal GDP). Japan is also one of the world’s top five importers and exporters. It’s a home to Canon, Sony and Toyota, to name just some of Japan’s business giants. Speaking Japanese will be an amazing advantage in negotiations with Japanese companies, and will open a lot of doors for you. (The Japanese love it when foreigners speak Japanese! They will also respect your dedication to learn their language)
