4 Reasons to Learn Japanese

Have you ever thought about learning a new language?
Many people often say they would like to learn, but never commit themselves or find they don’t have the time.
But we say different: learning a language is one of the most rewarding things you can do for your life and your career. And with distance learning, you are in control so time is not an issue.
So in that case, why not try Japanese…? As an underrated language, we want to change this and get more people speaking it.
Here’s 4 reasons why we think you should learn Japanese.

Improves brain functions and activity

Of all languages, Japanese is one of the hardest to learn. Having said that, you also stand to gain the most from learning Japanese.
When your brain is challenged and has to cope with something more difficult than it is used to, it improves its functions. Studying Japanese will not only make it easier for you to learn other languages in the future, it will make learning in general that little bit simpler.

Travel and culture opportunities

East Asia is a popular tourism destination for travellers. Whether you want to get up close and personal with the Komodo dragons, or see the Chocolate Hills in Bohol, it has a lot to offer. Speaking and understanding one of the most popular languages in East Asia will help you make the most of your travels.
You will be able to speak to the locals, ask for directions and understand what is going on around you; your travels will be so much better!


How many people do you know who know Japanese… not many, right?
That’s because Japanese is a very unique and different language. Having the ability to speak this language will make you stand out from the crowd.

Boost your CV

Speaking another language is like gold dust on CVs. Many employers look for this as it shows commitment to learning as well as benefits for the company. If a company has overseas communications, then it will need to hire someone who can work internationally for them.
So you know what this means… free (business) holidays!
