Who speaks Japanese?
Japanese does not belong to any language family. It is the so-called isolated language. It means that scientists have not been able to find any proven relationships with other known languages. It is used by approximately 130 million people, especially the people of Japan, but also Japanese emigrants.
Japanese has the official status only in two places in the world – Japan and Palau (precisely, in the Angaur State).
History of the Japanese language
We know very little about the origin of Japanese, and current theories are often inconsistent with each other. The oldest complex Japanese texts come from the 8th century AD. It is known that Japanese from that period was significantly different from the current one. Some syllables were written in different characters, there were more vowels in the language, and their length was not differentiated.
Use of the Japanese language in business
Japan is a very strong and important economy in the international arena – both in terms of technology as well as industry and services. Especially after the war, Japan opened its market to international contacts, which translated into dynamic development. The knowledge of Japanese will be useful in business relationships with this country, but also in the international arena, where Japan plays an increasingly important role.
