Why Japanese?

Two students and a Japanese lecturer in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch interview 9 Kiwis strong in Japanese. Their jobs are varied and do not fit the stereotypes normally associated with a language graduate. Hear what an accountant, digital marketing entrepreneur, international journalist, PR/marketing guru, international markets development manager, ESOL teacher, director of a rental property business and two students have to say about the difference Japanese has made in their career and life journeys. Japanese is the key to your exciting future!
