Why do you learn Japanese? (research)

Hello everyone. I’m working in a company that is making an online tool for learning Japanese through reading. Some of you may have heard about it, but I don’t want to make this post look like an ad :wink:

These days I’m trying to better understand people who learn Japanese and the question I’m interested in now is “Why do people learn Japanese? What’s their middle and end goals?” I hope this community can help me with finding the answer. Or at least part of the answer.

I would be super grateful if you could spare 2 minutes of your time to complete a short survey.

Take a survey and be awesome

If you don’t want to click any links, please just share your thoughts right here.

I’m looking forward to your replies!

Done. Anything to help the community. Tbh, I didn’t pick japanese, japanese picked me. Not really a joke, all my time awake has been to japanese studies of some kind, 70% of which is listening.

I started after realizing I like gekiga manga style, I dont like all those predictable shounen anymore.

After reading kubidai hikiukenin and satsuma gishiden I saw that as my manga style,

then I went looking for more from the same mangaka and they are not translated into english. So it is faster and easier to learn the language so I can read those type of manga (not very popular I guess).

I am doing same strategy when I started learning English, I realized that the subtitles for tv shows and movies usually took 15 to 30 days to be released in my native language, so I learned english very good so I dont rely on them anymore :smiley:
