Over the past 12 months I have been studying Japanese online with VLLC. I live in Sydney and I am learning Japanese to further my career in Hotel Management with the hope of using Japanese in the hospitality industry. Whilst studying with VLLC I was able to tailor my tutorials to include vocabulary specific to the hotel industry such as role plays as a concierge, or complaints management. I loved how easy it was to do online, no travelling to classes which saved me buckets of time!
As part of my Hotel management degree I have to go to various hotel chains for what is called a "stage" which is a bit like work experience. Hotel chains are impressed by my willingness to learn a new language and navigate unfamiliar situations even if I am not yet fluent. When I have been applying for future positions that require interaction with international clients, the fact that I am able to communicate in another language is giving me a real advantage. I am now well on my way to the completion of both my Hotel Management and Japanese qualification. Thanks VLLC, Chloe
