Foreign Language Training Program

The necessity of learning languages other than our mother tongue, especially a foreign language, is gaining importance more than ever in the current trends set forth by the industry and the business world. A student, who is multi-lingual, is considered to be an asset for MNCs globally. Apart from English, Japanese, Chinese, German, French and Spanish are some of the languages that are in current demand.

This being so, the importance of Japanese language can be discerned by the present situation in Japan. 84% of IT related Industries in Japan do not get adequate number of skilled professionals. Japan needs skilled work force of approximately 2,50,000 per year to meet its present requirement and it is looking forward to huge manpower from India. Indian Engineers are most favoured in Japan as they have excellent technical knowledge coupled with English language skill.

Engineers from South India are the most favoured due to their expression of qualities like kindness, dedication, focus and smart work.

Apart from software, recent Indo-Japan Joint declaration envisages opening up of pharmaceutical, computer hardware, automobile & allied Engineering Industries which require more Japanese learners for their operation in India in the fields inclusive of Translation and Interpretation.

With this noble cause in mind VIETW has expounded a unique Japanese Language Course comprising of three levels which would enable our students to speak, read and write the language as required by the standards of the current industrial scenario.

This unique language course commenced its operations on 17 September 2010 with the blessings of our esteemed Chairman Vidhya Ratna, Hind Ratan, Rashtriya Ratan, Achiever in Women’s Education, Konngu Nattu Sathanaiyalar Prof. Dr. M.Karunanithi and Dr. Krishnakumar….former Principal, VIETW and efficiently carried forward under the leadership of the current Principal Dr. Subramania Bharathi.

And as such there were 139 students who enrolled for the fundamental course initially. The response was so extremely encouraging that it motivated and inspired others to take up the course as well.

At the end of the course those students were successful in clearing the written and spoken examination for which certificates were distributed.
