What is the benefit of learning Japanese? 日本語学習のメリットは何ですか?
I would like to ask Japanese learners. What is the benefit of learning Japanese?

I'm an English learner. English is useful for me especially when I go abroad. I can ask someone in English when I get a problem. I can buy something that I want when I am on shopping. Furthermore, I made some foreign friends. I enjoy speaking English with them. Broadened my world.

How about you? What is the benefit of learning Japanese? Please feel free to tell me anything.

Well, since  I already know the most 'popular' language in the world right now, I'd mostly like to focus on learning languages I'd want to learn. Being a linguistics nut, I find Japanese extremely fascinating. Not only for its properties, but for its history as well. Not to mention I've been in love with Japanese culture since I was a kid. Since I'm planning to go to uni there, as well as live there, I figured I might as well learn the language.

Hello,

In my experience, learning Japanese has provided many benefits.

1. I live in Japan, so it is a primary communication tool that I use daily.
I can enjoy jokes, conversations, written material, and so on. 

2. There are many opportunities for in-house or freelance translation work.
One can also work in international banks, Japanese corporations (in japan or even overseas), 
or even Japanese start-up companies. Tons of opportunity.

3. Learning Japanese is a door to the Japanese culture. One's knowledge of Japan and it's culture
 can be open to a much deeper level through the native Japanese language.

4. Learning any language has many benefits of opening the mind, keeping the brain sharp, and 
other benefits as well.

5. It's fun.
And it is cool when you know Kanji like 犀 (サイ), rhino--and can use it to impress your Japanese friends or
co-workers.

Bonus point:
Having a good background in the Japanese language made it a lot easier for me to learn JSL (Japanese Sign language, 日本手話)

All the  best,
Mac

I'm happy to know those stories. Actually I didn't think that Japanese language was useful because it's not common in the world you know.
Yeah when you live in Japan and know well it, you can get earn by it. It's advantage for you.
