Are japanese people interested in learning to speak spanish or english?

Well when I grow up I want to go to Japan and teach different languages, but I only know english and spanish and was wondering if japanese people were interested in those languages. If not, which languages are they interested in? Thank you ^_^


  1. I’m a native Japanese speaker. Kon’nichiwa!
    English is the most popular foreign language in Japan.
    Learning the language is mandatory from junior high school.
    But now, learning English from an early age is considered important, and there are so many materials that teach English to children.
    Personally, I love learning English and now am studying in Oregon now as an exchange student from my home university in Japan.
    I am also interested in learning Spanish. I learned very basic Spanish at my college. I can say like: Hola! Mucho gusto. Yo soy Curious Taka. Yo soy de Japón. ¿Habla español?- Sí, sí hablo. Pero todavía muy poco.
    If you really want to teach English in Japan, I warmly welcome you (of course, there are a lot of other people who will welcome you)!
    Good luck! 🙂

  2. International Japanese businesses are conducted in English. Japanese children have English classes from an early age. Most classes dwell on written English and not the spoken English unfortunately. My husband use to work for Nippon for 7 years.

  3. English is always the top option. They teach them at schools, and you would also see English schools on every urban station.

    Spanish… I’m not sure, but it’s not one of the common options.
