I eventually will be already graduated in less then a year, therefore I asked myself what to study and where to go after finishing school.
My interests: I play the piano and accordion and know German, English and Russian perfectly as my languages, have studied 6 years Latin in school which gave me quite a good overview about how languages work and are structured. I like biology as a subject, whereas I still struggle with the chemical parts involved, as chemistry includes maths, which I don’t really like/care about. Especially this point makes it difficult for me to take a decision what to study and where to go, as I was advised not making my master later on in Japanese Studies.. Though, I’d like to have Japanese as my bachelor somehow and learn more about the culture and literature, also. I’d not be an “extra-burden” to me, as it’s more fun to me (no learning of kana, kanji, not much vocabulary and grammar etc.)
Any ideas? What did you chose/study? What has a futural perspective? I want to study something flexible and want to have not only one possibility working as a f.e. doctor after studying – classical – medicine at university. I hope you can help me out a bit?
@snesy: If you read this.. Japanese linguistics sound extremely interesting and promising to me, but I really cannot forsee what my job chances will be after mastering in this subject. On top of that can I expect myself being fluent in Japanese after that? I’m not sure concerning that as well… I don’t want to end up translating cook-books in my life. It would be ideal if you could mail me your telephone number somehow and we could have some small talk on the telephone. I really need some solid – true – and reliable advise that will not mess up my life entirely after chosing the wrong direction.. Thank you very much, T.
