The social background of excellent Chinese students wishing to study in Japan Currently, due to changes in the US-China relationship, the United States is suspending visas for Chinese students, and Chinese university graduates are having difficulty finding jobs due to the worsening economic situation in China. In addition, in China, intragenerational competition among young people, including university entrance exams and job hunting, is intensifying. Against this background, there is a tendency for talented Chinese students who have not studied in Japan to come to study in Japan because they are attracted by the culture of hiring new graduates and inexperienced people in Japan.
The number of JapanWing users surged
In addition to the external environment mentioned above, the rapid depreciation of the yen in recent years has boosted JapanWing’s sales soaring. This year’s sales are growing 260% year-on-year as of November.
Among the users, there is also a foreign student who has a track record of starting a business in China and then selling the business, which was selected for Forbes China Under 30.
JapanWing users use the service before entering university or graduate school, start learning language skills and business, and after entering university, study Japanese in parallel with university classes / research and long-term internship. are spending This kind of stoic student life aimed at self-growth has been highly evaluated by companies in job hunting and has earned a large number of job offers. Voices of JapanWing users
There are many excellent companies in Japan, but many of them have a B2B business model, and many of them are unknown to international students. Also, if you do not have Japanese language skills, you will not be able to understand the company’s website or ask questions when visiting OBOGs, and you will not be able to deepen your understanding of the company. Under such circumstances, there were comments such as that they were able to learn about excellent B2B companies through Japanese language and business lessons by professionals belonging to JapanWing who are familiar with the industry, and that they were able to learn technical terms for finding a job in Japan. Many people said that they were able to learn Japanese.
Mr. Wang, who actually got a job at a Japanese company through JapanWing and was selected for Forbes China Under 30, shares his comments.

Biography:
Established a company to develop AI systems for factories during college. In 2019, the founding company was awarded Forbes China Under 30 for its contribution to the manufacturing industry. After that, he sold the company and went to study in Japan. Currently working for a foreign manufacturer.

“When I was in college, I founded a company that develops AI systems for factories, and have realized the robotization of multiple factory sites with AI technology and automation products. I was awarded Forbes China Under 30 for my contribution to 2020. After that, I sold the company due to the effects of the new coronavirus and the economic situation in China and went to study in Japan in 2020.
I like the manufacturing industry the most, not to mention the high technological capabilities of Japan’s core industries such as precision machinery, robots, semiconductors, chemistry, and materials science, as well as the sense of security from potential recruitment and long-term employment contracts, and the future of the current Digital Transformation. I felt this, and decided to find a job in Japan and open a new page for myself.
I had obtained N1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) by self-study, but I was very worried about finding a job in Japan with only the Japanese language skills I had learned to pass the JLPT test. I’m confident in my expertise and background, but when I’m job hunting, I have to explain myself in business Japanese. For a Chinese student like me, that is the biggest hurdle, so I used JapanWing’s service.
I learned a lot from the classes taught by Japanese instructors who have achieved great results in global companies, and I was able to join a foreign-affiliated manufacturer. Even after joining the company, I continue to use JapanWing’s services because I feel that I need to learn a lot about Japanese language skills and Japanese business etiquette. ”
