Re: Resources for learning Japanese

Hi guys, first of all I think it's great you're already starting with japanese (you'll see it'll be incredibly useful when you get there!) In case you're interested, the books that are used at the japanese language school are "Minna no Nihongo" - the books give you a very strong grammar ba...

Re: Applying for a different than suggested traineeship

Then again...rumor has it, that the company heard that zaragui is a massive otaku and wouldn't want to take the risk... As a consequence the eu-japan centre imposed new guidelines to avoid otakus from now on. http://38.media.tumblr.com/ddf5fff75076f5ecb5c5655ee3fac4ff/tumblr_nj3cl2Q2BP1r5lnqco1_250...

Re: Applying for a different than suggested traineeship

Chances are scenario from the last year might happen again and you might loose your valuable year in Japan just like that. I didn't know my case was already famous amongst people in your year! haha Indeed, I was the guy that got his internship cancelled 1 week before the pre-departure briefing :mrg...

Re: Advice (about writing the letter and related)

Hey, I have a question if I list some additional courses (technical and linguistic) in Application Form/CV should I attach any certificates? ^ ^ If they are relevant, you most certainly should - I attached my JLPT scores when I applied. Just be sure you're not sending them an entire booklet with al...

Re: Spanish

N1: you don't need to give any money guarantees. As for your other questions, there is a part of the forum for "shortlisted" and "selected" people (not accessible to the general public) that contain answers to most of them. When/if you're selected, you'll have plenty of time to b...

Re: What's next after Vulcanus?

Yez gave you a very general overview, I'll go a bit more into detail. In our year, out of 45 participants (yes, a lot haha), there are currently 8 people returning. Because I have a lot of time in my hands, here are some details about everyone: #1 - ViJ in a Foreign company -> Job at the same compan...

Re: Experiences [Bad Ones]

I had a back problem in October and went to the hospital and got a check-up just like I would back at my home country. Did you communicate in English with the doctor? I didn't see this question! Sorry for the late reply (and the double post). No, I communicated in Japanese. However, since it was an...

Re: Experiences [Bad Ones]

I had some of those experiences: had my heart stolen by japanese girls, and then injured by them. Also, if "loving kawaii things" can be called a disease, I got it. Now seriously. Japan is a very safe country but it might happen that you get something stolen or whatever - and you'd deal wi...

Re: Learning the Japanese language

Well hello everyone. I am also a participant here this year and I have some piece of advice as well. My japanese learning was a bit different from everyone else's but from what I heard from several participants this year, I can almost guarantee you that one year of studying at full-throttle at home ...

Japanese level?

Hello everyone. So I was finishing my application and I was wondering... I've lived in Japan before and I'm pretty much fluent in Japanese (passed the new JLPT N2 with 80% at the time). Do you think this will play in my favor or will it be against me? Won't they think "hey, this guy has spent 1...
