Why learn Japanese?

Learn Japanese Online

Japanese is the mother tongue of more than 130 million people and is the tenth most spoken language in the world. Japanese is spoken in Japan, the Land of the Rising Sun, and has the third largest economy in the world. After the US, Japan has the second greatest number of Fortune 500 global companies in the world, being home to 68 of them.

Japan is also the origin of many new social and cultural trends that have influenced global societies and which are now part of an international culture. From cartoons to sushi bars and karaoke, these are just a few examples of how Japan and the Japanese language have become an integral part of international culture.
