Time To Choose A Lucrative Career Path!

No this is not one of those persuasions to push a college program to a +2 pass out!

LEARNING JAPANESEThis article is based on solid evidence & goes to prove how learning Japanese is increasingly being adopted as a main stream & lucrative career. If you are at  cross roads of deciding on a “non mainstream career” (viz, outside of engg, law, medicine etc), here is some solid fodder! Learning Japanese involves getting certified by Japan foundation across five levels. These levels start from JLPT N5 (entry) to JLPT N1 (highest). It is instructive to remember that in India most of the Japanese related job opportunities start at the JLPT N3 level. With an JLPT N2 certification things begin to further look attractive in terms of role, designation & of course (Rs) !learning japaneseAn analysis of Japanese CVs# reveal some very interesting data. The table below provides a brief analysis
Streams % Across all JLPT Levels % of L3* & N3 % of L2* & N2
ARTS & COMMERCE (Includes BBA & MBA) 54 48 54
PURE SCIENCE & COMP SC(Includes BCS & MCA) 16 22 11
ENGG 25 16 23
Others 5 14 12
*L3 & L2 were part of the previous level classification given by Japan Foundation. For this analysis they have been clubbed with N3 & N2 respectively. # These CVs are part of our own bilingual database of employed candidates.
Inferences:learning japanese
  1. Over half of the candidates at the JLPT N2/L2 level are Arts & Commerce graduates.
  2. Nearly half of  the candidates at the JLPT N3/L3 level are Arts & Commerce graduates.
  • So those dithering on pursuing an Arts & Commerce graduation program should seriously consider this data.
  1. Learning Japanese is immensely benefitting Pure Science graduates too. A JLPT N3/N2 certification takes a pure science graduate to a completely different career plane.
  2. Very interesting to note that nearly a fourth of the JLPT N2 level candidates are engineers. This means learning Japanese is adding more punch to their technical careers.
Thus the obvious take away for students, especially the + 2 pass outs is this. Today there are very strong reasons to pursue non mainstream courses. Learning Japanese gives such candidates a fantastic career that has immense flexibility, opportunities & of course a lot of money.  To learn Japanese reach us  Tel  8904390300 +918023464677,  | Email: info@snrc.co.in

 Learning Japanese – Can it be an interesting process?

learn japanese
learn japanese Learning Japanese is a very exciting & interesting process. That is how it should be! Japanese language lends itself to many perception challenges, especially to beginners. This could get further reinforced if the teaching methodology is not creative. It’s the responsibility of the Japanese language teacher to create an abiding interest in the language. That’s the only way learning Japanese will be interesting! At Sakuraa we continuously work on our teaching methodology to ensure that the focus is on making the learning experience interesting. We do this by a variety of techniques. Every student who comes to us is different.  We continuously adapt to them. Student diversity keeps us on our toes. No matter what we claim, the ultimate proof of our ability lies in what our students think of us! So here is yet another interesting case. Watch Sunil’s Japanese learning experience at  Sakuraa. Listen carefully to his perception challenge as he started out learning Japanese, the help he received in utilizing the Nihonjin Sensei's skills etc. Mastery over Kanji’s is an integral part of learning Japanese. Sunil finds the Kanji learning process at Sakuraa very helpful. The grammar practice & story telling sessions at Sakuraa have only helped him build his confidence in the Japanese language. You could learn Japanese too! Call us for additional details. 080- 23464677 or Email us - info@snrc.o.in

1st Nov 2014: learn japaneseKannada Rajyothsavada Shubashaigalu! Many of us admire Kannada, for all the right reason! Today is a day to reflect on that yet again. At this juncture how would it be if one could put ones’ Kannada knowledge to good effect in building a good career in Japanese language? Does   it sound improbable or weird? No it is not!  Read on… Kannada , like many Indian mothers tongues, carries a grammar structure very similar to Japanese  language (unlike English). The S-O-V (Subject – Object – Verb ) structure of Kannada & Japanese is similar.  Watch this video to understand this better. So competence in Kannada can easily translate into better learning of Japanese. Surprisingly many prospective Japanese learners think that learning Japanese would need a command over English language! It goes without saying that in today’s globalized world, it certainly helps having a good control over English. However the point is that there are many who have excelled in learning Japanese despite drawbacks with their English, by leveraging their native language strengths! This actually is a very important point for prospective Japanese language learners to note. Quite frankly its doesn’t matter how good one’s English is.  One needn’t be diffident on this score. Learning Japanese can take off based on the learner’s native mother tongue strengths. Why is this important?? Many career opportunities around Japanese language skills are opening up. There is a significant demand for Japanese language skills.  Read this to  understand career opportunities, salaries etc for those with Japanese language skills.  Read this to get an idea of the Japanese job market in India.   After all nothing like hearing from a student who would fit this story above! Watch him talk about it (its in Kannada!) Done ? Like to learn Japanese? Reach us here.

 Japanese Emperor’s Visit – What does it mean to Japanese learners?

Learning Japanese & Japanese Job Opportunities

[caption id="attachment_3" align="alignleft" width="110"]Learn Japanese translation Sakuraa Nihongo Resource Centre[/caption] We have repeatedly emphasized that Learning Japanese can be an excellent career option. Please check out the archives of Jul, Aug & October. Here is some great news which further reinforces our view & significantly opens up opportunities for Japanese skilled personnel. The level of economic cooperation between the our two countries is clearly on the rise. [su_highlight background="#fdf914"]The recent visit of Emperor Akihito & Empress Michiko - at the recommendation of the cabinet - is proof of this. [/su_highlight] Learning Japanese - Emperor of Japan Can the visit of the emperor, holding a non executive head of state position, impact economic ties? In this case, yes it can & that’s the precedence set. Also India regards this visit as a historic milestone & has accorded it the highest level of diplomatic significance possible.[su_frame] Its noteworthy that the Emperor last visited India - as the crown prince- when Babu Rajendra Prasad was the president , Sarvapalli Radhakrishan the Vice President & Jawaharlal Nehru the PM![/su_frame] Japan, under the leadership of PM Shnizo Abe, is clearly using this visit to indicate their genuine interest in escalating the level of economic & trade cooperation with India. In a sense this is unprecedented. Sample this. [su_list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#61fdef"]
  • The civil nuclear cooperation negotiation is resuming
  • Bilateral currency swap of 50 Billion $
  • Possibility of introducing high speed railway
  • Delhi Mumbai Freight Corridor is progressing
  • Delhi Mumbai Industrial corridor
  • Chennai Bangalore industrial corridor
  • Cooperation w.r.t to counter terrorism & defence
[/su_list]This apart there is a significant interest evinced by Japanese companies in investing in Indian companies in the recent past , especially the PE & VC funds. [su_highlight background="#e9f80a"]Learning Japanese is turning out to be an excellent career option for those who are ready! The above are expected to clearly translate into significant opportunities for those who are familiar with Japanese language. Make no mistake! [/su_highlight] Team SNRC
