I live in delhi and currently doing economics hons. from du and I want to know should study Japanese as a part time course?

Actually I am an economics student. I have completed my 1st year. In my 1st year I was also doing japanese language as a part time course from delhi university only. Since people are advising me that I should concentrate on one thing only that is economics else I won't be able to achieve in economics if I keep giving time to my japanese. So kindly help me should I continue with it or drop it and do it later after completing me economics?

Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for approaching us at CareerGuide. I appreciate your detailed query.

See, it depends on what you are interested more. Is it economics or japanese? People are in a way right to suggest you that you should concentrate on one thing and not divert your self. However you need to think whether you would like to build your career in economics or japanese for your life?

Learning Japanese as a part time thing, is definitely good thing and I dont think so that it will eat up your study time. You will have to convince them.

I would not recommend you to drop it completely but you should have a discipline in studies for economics.

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo a Psychometric Career Assessment test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which stream is good for you.

Best wishes,

Thanks for writing to CareerGuide.com.

I assume that you would like to do higher studies in Economics. I have few reflective questions for you to ponder.
How Japanese would help you?
What motivated to study Japanese language?
Are you studying Japaneses for your hobby or for specific purpose?
Why Japanese language, other UN's official language such an French, Russian or other language such as German has also career scope?

If you become proficient in specific language then it would be useful for enhancing your career. If it is purposeful for enhancing career then you may continue with your study.

Foreign language experts with a good understanding of cultures are in great demand in the corporate world. Proficiency in foreign languages opens the gate for career in sectors such as tourism, embassies, diplomatic service, entertainment, public relations and mass communication, international organisations, publishing, interpretation and translation, etc. Additionally, various multinational corporate bodies require candidates possessing excellent language skills in French, German, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and so.

Scope of Economics and Japanese:
Since economics have scope to work in private/public banking sector, MNCs, Journalism, BPOs, KPOs, proficiency in Japaneses language may be very useful.

With new Government, it is expected to get investment from Japanese companies, there would be scope of professionals with proficient Japanese language.

If you are studying Japanese out of your hobby then you can think to discontinue as it consumes lot of time and energy to learn Japanese.

Hope this may help you take informed decision about learning Japanese language.

Best Luck with your career!

Hi There,

You have a unique study combination.

Since economics is a course that deal with the statistics and financial data of the organization, many students opt for Civil service examination, after their Graduation.

If you are also tryoing for IAS exams, then learning a foreign language is always good.

Rather even if you are not, and wish to work as an Economists in an organization, I would suggests you to learn as many languages as possible.

Firstly, please note that, always taking up a course equivalent to your profession, is a must, but not compulsory, since during the work experiences, knowledge can be gained.
Secondly I am of the firm belief that just studying 24/7 just does not happen.
One needs some extra activities along side with studies. This helps keep the mind relaxed and focused.

Thirdly, Since you are on your way to graduation, I do expect Maturity, in terms of knowing which course will help you in your future. So you should be knowing ways to distribute your time and focus accordingly.

Whatever you do, learn to make the optimum use of it and success will follow.

Wish you good luck...........
