    Why you should study Japanese

    !e Japanese language is one of the most popular modern languages in the U.S. and the number of college students studying Japanese is on increase. (10.3% in 2006-2009 accord-ing to Furman et al., (2010)). New York, especially Manhattan and Queens, has a high den-sity of Japanese language learners and a recent survey by MLA shows that more than 50,000 people are currently learning Japanese in Queens.!e Japanese culture is undoubtedly a major attraction to those learners. Japanese food, such as sushi and ramen, has become a popular choice among New Yorkers. Most college students in the U.S. have played Japanese video games in their youth (or even now) and have gone to karaoke to hang out with their friends. !e pop-culture, including anime and TV drama, is another major interest among Japanese language learners. In addition to these contemporary culture, Japan has rich traditions and classical literature, such as karate and judo (Japanese martial arts), !e Tale of Genji (classical novel written in the 11th cen-tury), and nihonga (classic Japanese "ne art) to name a few.!e Japanese language class at LaGuardia CC, with many extracurricular Japanese cultural activities, will provide you with not only the foreign language skill but also a deep appre-ciation about the Japanese society and culture.* Furman, N., Goldberg, D., and Lusin, N.
