i wanna live in japan. what do i need to know ?

Post by wajdi » Mon 12.06.2010 10:57 am

Hello everyone

I wish to work and live in japan, i mean it's my dream.

So...here is some info about me :i am 23. i have a diploma in Economics , and speak 4 languages ( well 3.5 Japanese being the last half) English French Arabic and hopefully Japanese.i never worked before (well..i just graduated) and i guess that is all there is to know about me... also unless things changed, we don't need visa to go to Japan since i am Tunisian (from Tunisia) i think we are unique or something. i see my self doing something like communicating with other subsidiaries around the world of some company using my awesome linguistic skills 8) .
So i wonder you guys could help making the plan that would help me make my dream come true.

You do not need a visa to visit Japan as a tourist or on business for up to 3 months. Tunisia is one of 61 countries whose citizens can enter Japan under the Visa Waiver Program so you're not unique. :)

However, I don't believe there are any foreigners that can work in Japan without a working visa.

Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Well you are just like me. Since I was a little kid I've been interested in Japan.
And last year I finally got a chance to visit and it was great!

Now I'm determined to live at least a couple of years in Japan. But as you probably now, it's difficult to get a Visa in Japan.
Well I've been working on something that will make it possible for me to live in Japan in a couple of years.

But hey tell me more about yourself. Maybe I can help you.

The post you just replied to is over two years old... I think that conversation is over.

If you're too lazy to learn the kana which are the sounds from which Japanese words are made and make up the first lessons on every learning site and in every beginner's book on Japanese, or else too blind to find that there are lessons that come after learning the kana and basic pronunciations... then, yes, it's a good idea for someone that incompetent to give up on the language now since you won't succeed anyway.

It doesn't even have anything to do with the topic you posted in.

Actually, I don't think you care anything about Japanese, you're probably just randomly trolling the first forum you came across.

Before learning Japanese I would first recommend learning English.
