The Mysteries Evolution of the Japanese Language:

The language form taught in our Japanese languages classes in BTM is called the “Modern/Standard Japanese”. This standard form has evolved from old, late old and middle Japanese forms since the early 8th.

There are many theories regarding the evolution of Japanese language, some weirder than the other. For example: some linguists believe that during 9th  century Korean rice farmers travelling to Japan bought with them the predecessors of the language which then combined with the crude native language spoken by the hunter gatherers of Japan and the Chinese language. The result is what we now know as the “Modern Japanese”.

However none of these theories have any documented proof about the actual origin of the spoken form of Japanese. The Japonic language family is unique and there are no other language systems matching it in this world. Spoken Japanese closely relates to Korean phonetically as both the languages share the same vowel sounds and syllable stress. However written Japanese is a mixture of Chinese characters (Kanji), the 2 kana’s (Hiragana & Katakana) and many loanwords from English known as the Romaji.

Our experienced trainers handling Japanese language classes in BTM deal with each of these scripts separately and will explain the context in which they have to be used while framing or reading sentences.
