Pakistani students who are familiar with the Japanese language could fulfil the need of qualified and skilled human resource in Japan. Pakistani students are approaching Japan for career opportunities but they are less in numbers. Learning of Japanese language has become a way for international students to secure their bright future in world’s most prosperous country.
President Hotsuma International Japan Dr. Ohira Yoshikazu expressed these views while delivering a lecture in a seminar on ‘Career Opportunities in Japan for Pakistani Students’ organised by Applied Economics Research Centre (AERC), University of Karachi (KU) at its auditorium on Monday.
Director AERC-KU Prof. Dr. Samina Khalil and Shuja Haider, the Japanese language expert of Japan House also spoke on the occasion.
Dr. Yoshikazu advised the students of AERC that they must have experience of learning and working in Japan. He said that his Japanese language schools under the title of Hotsuma International are schooling the language in two important cities of Japan, Gifu and Tokyo. He said that our institutional policy surrounds three letters, MAC, which means manners, attendance and communication. He observed that punctuality and regularity are the major characteristics of Japanese society.
He underlined the importance of Japanese language for Pakistan students who are willing to avail career opportunities in Japan. He said that his schools have accepted many students from various countries and played a central role in Japanese language education in Gifu.
‘Our mission is not only to teach Japanese language but also to develop students’ global talent to contribute to Japanese society. We all work together to provide students many opportunities for improving their Japanese language skills and growing as a person’, he said.
Talking about the importance of languages, Prof. Dr. Samina Khalil said that no country could attain desirable progress until it declared its national language as official language and medium of instruction. She said that Japan is the third prosperous nation of the world. Our students must go to Japan as this country is like a land of opportunities, she added.—APP
